CONVERT-IP-DB(1)	    General Commands Manual	      CONVERT-IP-DB(1)

NAME
       convert-ip-db - prepare IP address to hostname mappings for Analog

SYNOPSIS
       convert-ip-db [ip2host.db]

DESCRIPTION
       convert-ip-db  reads a DB file produced by dns-terror.  It converts the
       IP address to hostname mappings	from  that  file  into	Analog	config
       directives.  It writes to the standard output, which should be saved in
       a file (suggested name: dns.cache) which	is sourced  in	Analog	config
       files with:

       DNS READ
       DNSFILE ./dns.cache
       # 1008 is (35+7)*24, one	week past the expire-ip-db default.
       DNSGOODHOURS 1008
       DNSBADHOURS 1008

       This  handling  of  IP  address resolution is similar in	speed to using
       dns-terror -oz to rewrite the log files in gzip form with IP  addresses
       resolved, so perhaps it should be considered obsolete.

FILES
       ip2host.db
	      Default input DB file.

       dns.cache
	      Suggested	output file name.
