OIDENTD_MASQ.CONF(5)	      oidentd User Manual	  OIDENTD_MASQ.CONF(5)

NAME
       oidentd_masq.conf - oidentd NAT configuration file

DESCRIPTION
       If NAT support is enabled with the --masquerade option, oidentd reads
       the /usr/local/etc/oidentd_masq.conf file to determine ident responses
       to queries intended for other machines. It is also possible to forward
       queries to ident	servers	on the hosts connecting	through	the machine
       oidentd runs on.	For more information on	forwarding, please see the
       --forward option	in oidentd(8).

       The NAT configuration file contains one rule per	line. Lines are	read
       from top	to bottom, and only the	first matching rule is used. Lines
       starting	with a number sign ("#") are ignored.

RULE FORMAT
       Rules must have the following form:

	   host[/mask] response	system-type

       The host	field specifies	the hostname or	IP address of the host that
       owns the	connection for which an	ident query was	received. This host
       must be connecting through the machine oidentd runs on. The host	may be
       specified as either an IP address or a hostname.

       If a network mask is specified using the	mask field, the	rule applies
       to all hosts in the given subnetwork. Network masks may be specified in
       dot notation (e.g., "255.255.192.0") or in CIDR notation	(e.g., "18").

       The response field specifies the	response to be sent when receiving a
       query for the specified host or subnetwork.

       The system-type field specifies the operating system to send alongside
       the ident response. See the --other option in oidentd(8)	for more
       information.

EXAMPLES
	   # host[/mask]	   response  system-type
	   10.0.0.1		   user1     UNIX
	   server.internal	   user2     UNIX-BSD
	   10.0.0.0/24		   user3     UNIX
	   10.0.0.0/255.255.0.0	   user4     UNKNOWN

       Note that the order of the rules	is significant in this example.	Due to
       lines being read	from top to bottom, more specific rules	must precede
       more general ones. For example, the rule	for "10.0.0.1" would not match
       any connections if it were preceded by the more general "10.0.0.0/24".
