But this option also works with nonlocal servers, in connection

I find it usefull, the user sees what's going on. But shouldn't we
change "0.500" to "0.5" ?

I see another small problem with it. When a server name is entered
with -s and the DNS is not accessible, the client doesn't come up.
It should, and display a "searching for ..." message.
