NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       atmhosts - ATM host name file

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  atmhosts  file is an ASCII file that contains an single-line
 entry for each host on the  ATM  network.    Each
       entry consists of an ATM host address, official host name,
       and any aliases.

       Parameters are separated by spaces or tab  characters.   A
       number  sign  (#)  indicates  the  beginning of a comment;
       characters up to the end of the line are  not  interpreted
       by routines that search the file.

       ATM host addresses are specified by an even number of hexadecimal
 digits.  Each pair of digits represents 8 bits of
       address  information.   An  ATM  address can be one of the
       following: An ATM End System Address (AESA) as  registered
       with  the  network  (19 bytes, or 38 hexadecimal digits) A
       local Endpoint System Identifier (ESI) that is  registered
       with  the local switch (6 bytes, or 12 hexadecimal digits)
       An AESA with selector byte, representing the address of  a
       service  on  a remote machine (20 bytes, or 40 hexadecimal

       By default, the atmhosts file contains an entry for Permanent
 Virtual Circuits (PVCs). The entry consists of an ATM
       address of 40 hexadecimal zeros (0) and the host name PVC.
       Do not change or delete this entry.
