Hi guys,
with the new release of Debian 'Stretch', the route command has been replaced
but what other command returns the hostname of the modem/router gateway...?
# route
gateway = home.telecomitalia.it
# ip route
gateway =

$ ip -r r

You need to ask for the resolver with -r.

man ip-route documents the arguments/commands, but you need
man ip for the options (which are common).

Thanks for reply, Max Power.

You could try the host(1) utility:

$ host


$ host
Host not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

Looks like is not your default route.
