NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       ipnodes - The IP node name database

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  ipnodes file contains information regarding the known
       IP nodes (both IPv4 and IPv6) on the  network.   For  each
       node  a  single  line should be present with the following
       information: IP_address canonical_nodename aliases

       Items are separated by any number of blanks or tab characters,
  or  both.  The # (number sign) indicates the beginning
 of a comment; characters up to the end  of  the  line
       are not interpreted by routines which search the file.

       Network  addresses,  both  IPv4 and IPv6, are specified in
       the IPv6 notation using the inet_pton() routine  from  the
       Internet  address  manipulation  library.   Node names may
       contain any printable character other than a field  delimiter,
 newline, or comment character.
