CONVERT-IP-DB(1) FreeBSD General Commands Manual CONVERT-IP-DB(1)

convert-ip-db - prepare IP address to hostname mappings for Analog

convert-ip-db [ip2host.db]

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.

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

convert-dom-db(1), dns-terror(1), expire-ip-db(1), make-report(1)
