SYNOPSIS

yadifa [-s host] [-V] [-h] [-t command] [-q zone]

DESCRIPTION

yadifa controls the operation of yadifad.

yadifa communicates with a name server over a TCP connection. The protocol used between client - server is an extension of the DNS protocol. The authentication is done by a mutual key between client and server. This key has the same format as a TSIG. Authentication is not needed, but provides more secure communication if used.

Several algorithms can be used for creating a TSIG:
* HMAC-MD5
* HMAC-SHA1

OPTIONS

[--config|-c configfile]
  Another config file will be used.
[--server|-s host]
  Host is the remote server to operate. If used with a different port: e.g.: ./yadifa --server "192.0.2.1 port 5353"
[-V] Show version information.
[--help|-h]
  Show a help text
