NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       netmasks - DHCP server database

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  netmasks  file is employed by joind, the DHCP server,
       to inform it about any networks having non-standard subnet
       masks.   This file is only needed on those platforms which
       don't provide a netmasks database, either as a  text  file
       or  as  an NIS map.  Each network whose mask is other than
       the standard A, B, or C mask should have an entry in  this
       file.   Each  entry  has  two  fields: the network and the
       mask.  The network may be written with or  without  zeros.
       See join.ipaddresses(4) for details.

       This file also supports variable subnetting.  If each subnetwork
 is further divided into subnetworks with  a  variable
 mask, the subnetworks can also appear on the LHS.

   FORMAT    [Toc]    [Back]
       Blank  lines  and  lines  beginning  with "#" are ignored.
       Entries  are  separated  from  one  another  by  newlines.
       Entries   consist   of  two  fields:  the  network  number
       (expressed  as  an  IP  address),  and  the  network  mask
       expressed as an IP address.


       Commands:  joind(8), join.ipaddresses(4).  delim off
