Hi Manfred,

I use mrtg-2.9.22 on NT, it needed the \ (backslash).

Previously I used it on mrtg-2.9.18 as well.

My experience does not harmonize with the mentioned FAQ.

Your mrtg version a little bit old, I can not give you an exact information
concerning to that version.

(Don't you want to upgrade? :))  )
