NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       nets - JOIN DHCP server database

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  nets file is employed by joind, the JOIN DHCP server,
       to tell it which networks to administer and the ranges  of
       IP  addresses  available for dynamic assignment on each of
       those networks.

   FORMAT    [Toc]    [Back]
       Blank lines and lines beginning with the number  sign  (#)
       are  ignored.   Entries  are separated from one another by
       newline characters.  Entries consist of three fields:  the
       network  number  (expressed  as  an  IP  address),  the IP
       address or name of a host running joind, which dynamically
       configures  clients  on the network, and a range of available
 addresses for dynamic allocation to hosts on the net.
       The range is expressed as a pair of IP addresses separated
       with a dash (-). There must be  no  whitespace  separating
       the dash from the IP addresses.

       Several  servers  may  administer  a single network, and a
       single server may administer several networks.  Each  network-server
  pair  may have several ranges of IP addresses
       available for dynamic allocation.  The network and  server
       IP addresses do not have to be repeated for each entry.  A
       line containing a single field is  assumed  to  be  an  IP
       range  with  the  same  server and network as the previous
       entry: a line of two fields is  assumed  to  be  a  server
       address  and IP range with the same network as the preceding

       The ranges of addresses served by each cooperating  server
       must be disjoint.  This condition is checked by the server
       on startup.
