YADIFA is an utility for controlling YADIFAD

Synopsis

yadifa [--config|-c configfile] [-s host] [@host ] [-K key-name] [--version|-V] [-h] [--verbose|-v] [-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 ]
Host is the remote server to operate. If used with a different port: e.g.: ./yadifa --server "192.0.2.1 port 5353"
[-k key-name]
Name of the key to be used for the controller.
[--verbose|-v]
verbose output.
[--version|-V]
Show version information.
