openssl: strange error.... (at first glance) error:2008F002:BIO

Some days ago i wanted to do a check of a certificate of an ip address. No big deal - so i did:
schroff@zerberus:~$ openssl s_client -showcerts  -connect 82.165.229.87.87:443

140011908769088:error:2008F002:BIO routines:BIO_lookup_ex:system
lib:../crypto/bio/b_addr.c:726:Name or service not known
connect:errno=22
So i opened google to find a solution.
But on google i found nothing really helpful.

?

The answer was very easy:
If i read the command line carfully, i would have detected my error:

THE IP ADDRESS WAS INVALID

I wrote an ipv4 with 5 numbers and not with 4...

After using a correct ipv4 number the command worked like expected:
schroff@zerberus:~$ openssl s_client -showcerts -connect 82.165.229.87:443 #
CONNECTED(00000003)
Can't use SSL_get_servername
