inadyn.conf - Man Page

configuration for the inadyn-mt client for open DNS servers.


inadyn-mt (based on inadyn, inadyn-advanced) can read the very same options which can be present in the command line  from a configuration file. This feature allows the user to write the options only once, and avoids frequent retyping.

The format of the file follows the *NIX tradition:

a '#' character denotes a comment.

The long options (those with '--' in front) can also be placed at the  beginning of the line without '--' signs.

a \ can be used as an escape character.



#Some comment about inadyn-mt cfg file

--username test --password test --update_period 60000

--alias test.homeip.net --alias my.second.domain


--username test # user

--password test

update_period 60000  # some other param without '--'

alias test.homeip.net
