SYNOPSIS

convert-ip-db [ip2host.db]

DESCRIPTION

convert-ip-db reads a DB file produced by dns-terror. It converts the IP address to hostname mappings from that file into Analog config directives. It writes to the standard output, which should be saved in a file (suggested name: dns.cache) which is sourced in Analog config files with:

DNS READ
DNSFILE ./dns.cache
# 1008 is (35+7)*24, one week past the expire-ip-db default.
DNSGOODHOURS 1008
DNSBADHOURS 1008

This handling of IP address resolution is similar in speed to using dns-terror -oz to rewrite the log files in gzip form with IP addresses resolved, so perhaps it should be considered obsolete.

FILES

ip2host.db Default input DB file.
dns.cache Suggested output file name.
