dns-bootp(1)		    General Commands Manual		  dns-bootp(1)

NAME
       dns-bootp - generate bootp tables from DNS tables

SYNOPSIS
       dns-bootp [ option...  ][ infile	[ outfile ]]
       dns-bootp -Help
       dns-bootp -VERSion

DESCRIPTION
       The  dns-bootp  program is used to generate the /etc/bootptab file from
       the forward DNS	tables.	  This	is  supplemented  with	an  additional
       ``bootp'' class.

       The output format is described in the bootpd (8)	manual entry.

BOOTP TYPES
       The ``bootp'' class has the following defined types:

       bf  The absolute	path of	the bootfile.

       bs  Bootfile size in 512-octet blocks.  It is best to leave this	unset.

       cs  A  list  of	one  or	more cookie servers.  These will be translated
	   into	IP addresses on	output.

       ds  A list of one or more DNS servers.  These will be  translated  into
	   IP addresses	on output.

       gw  A list of one or more gateways (routers).  These will be translated
	   into	IP addresses on	output.

       ha  The name of a host with a defined ``ether a'' record.  This will be
	   translated  into an Ethernet	address	on output.  This should	not be
	   set,	as it is automatically generated from the ``ether a'' record.

       hd  The absolute	path of	the bootfile home directory.

       hn  Set the value to "yes" is the hostname should be  sent  to  RFC1048
	   clients.

       ht  This	 field	encodes	 the  hardware type.  The most useful value is
	   ``ethernet'', see bootpd(8) for more	information.

       im  A list of one or more impress server.   These  will	be  translated
	   into	IP addresses on	output.

       ip  The	name  of  a host with a	defined	``in a'' record.  This will be
	   translated into an IP address on output.  This should not  be  set,
	   as it is automatically generated from the ``in a'' record.

       lg  A  list  of one or more log servers.	 These will be translated into
	   IP addresses	on output.

       lp  A list of one or more LPR servers.  These will be  translated  into
	   IP addresses	on output.

       ns  A  list  of	one or more IEN-116 servers.  These will be translated
	   into	IP addresses on	output.

       rl  A list of one or more resource location  servers.   These  will  be
	   translated into IP addresses	on output.

       sm  Host	subnet mask

       sr  The	name of	the server to boot from.  This will be translated into
	   an IP address on output.

       tc  Table continuation, points to similar "template" host  entry,  usu-
	   ally	 in  a	file prepended to the output.  Many host entries share
	   common values for  certain  tags  (such  as	name  servers,	etc.).
	   Rather  than	repeatedly specifying these tags, a full specification
	   can be listed for one host entry and	shared by others  via  the  tc
	   (table  continuation)  mechanism.  The generated output will	always
	   place the ``tc'' entry first.  Information explicitly specified for
	   a host always overrides information implied by a ``tc'' reference.

       to  Time	offset in seconds from UTC, the	time zone.  If set to ``auto''
	   it will use the time	server's timezone.

       ts  A list of one or more time servers.	These will be translated  into
	   IP addresses	on output.

       vm  The	vendor	magic  cookie  selector.   The	most  useful  value is
	   ``auto'' or don't set it.  See bootpd(8) for	additional  mystifica-
	   tion.

       T*  There is also a generic tag,	Tn, where n is an RFC1048 vendor field
	   tag number.	See bootpd(8) for more addition	mystification.

THE * DEFAULT
       The special host	name ``*'' may be used to specify defaults.  These may
       be  over-riden  by  specific entries.  The most recently	see default of
       each type name is remembered.  This may be exploited, for  example,  to
       set different servers and gateways for different	networks.

OPTIONS
       The following options are understood:

       -Help
	       Provide some help with using the	dns-bootp program.

       -VERSion
	       Print the version of the	dns-bootp program being	executed.

       All other options will produce a	diagnostic error.
