The description of the options


use "ip" as a placeholder for the host. Usage of "ip" suggests it must be an IP address, whereas any host specification (hostname or ip address) is valid

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
Suggest using "host" instead of "ip". I think this is used in other parts of the manual too.

Thank you for the bug report.

I've updated the documentation so that it uses host:port and explicitly mentions that you can use hostname and/or IP address.

I've also updated mysql-proxy so that the inbuilt help text reports the options using host:port in place of ip:port.
