NSS_MDNS.CONF(5)	  FreeBSD File Formats Manual	      NSS_MDNS.CONF(5)

NAME
     nss_mdns.conf -- configuration file for libnss_mdns(8).

DESCRIPTION
     This file describes the domains that libnss_mdns(8) is to support.	 If a
     lookup domain is not in this list,	then NSS_STATUS_NOTFOUND will be re-
     turned to libc and	processing will	continue according to
     nsswitch.conf(5).

   Configuration file format
     Lines containing only whitespace or lines whose first non-whitespace
     character is `#' are ignored.  No single line may be greater than 1023
     characters	plus end-of-line.

	   domain x.y.z

     Enable use	of libnss_mdns(8) to lookup DNS	entries	in the `x.y.z' domain.
     Leading and trailing dots are dropped.

     Reverse (PTR) lookups are enabled using their DNS names.  IPv6 names use
     "nibble format".

	   domain 254.169.in-addr.arpa
	   domain 0.8.e.f.ip6.arpa

   Default configuration
     If	the configuration file cannot be found then the	following is assumed.

	   domain local
	   domain 0.8.e.f.ip6.int
	   domain 0.8.e.f.ip6.arpa
	   domain 254.169.in-addr.arpa
