Description Bastien Nocera 2005-04-27 13:46:48 UTC
If the user chooses '' as a gateway IP address (instead of the
more commonly used '', the IP address will be considered as the octal
version by route.

The installer should transform the IP address into a decimal version before
writing the configuration files (as it would be the same behaviour for the
gateway and machine's IP address).
