dns-ethers-import(1)	    General Commands Manual	  dns-ethers-import(1)

NAME
       dns-ethers-import - generate DNS	tables from /etc/ethers	entries

SYNOPSIS
       dns-ethers-import [ option...  ]	filename...
       dns-ethers-import -Help
       dns-ethers-import -VERSion

DESCRIPTION
       The dns-ethers-import program is	used to	read your /etc/ethers file and
       produce a DNS-formatted database.  This is used to maintain a  database
       with  the  IP address and the MAC address in the	same file.  This helps
       find omissions and inconsistencies.

OPTIONS
       The following options are understood:

       -Domain name
	       This option may be used to set the domain name in the generated
	       file.   Defaults	 to  you system	domain name, if	set, otherwise
	       ``example.com''.

       -Help
	       Provide some help with using the	dns-ethers-import program.

       -VERSion
	       Print the version of the	dns-ethers-import program  being  exe-
	       cuted.

EXAMPLE
       If you have an /etc/ethers file which looks like	this:
       By using	the following command
	      %	dns-ethers-import /etc/ethers ethers-tmp
	      %
       You will	see an output file of the form
	      $origin example.com.
	      @		      in      soa     example.com. hostmaster.example.com. (
					      3	      ;	serial
					      10800   ;	refresh: 3 hours
					      1800    ;	retry: 30 minutes
					      604800  ;	expire:	1 week
					      86400 ) ;	minimum: 1 day

	      pluto	      ether   a	      8:0:9:d:2a:87
       You  are	 expected to manually edit this	into the rest of the database.
       You especially need to put sensable values into the SOA record.

       See dns-ethers(1) for how to retrieve your /etc/ethers  file  once  you
       have imported it.
