NAME

  binlog.auth -	 authorization file for	accepting remote binlog	messages

SYNOPSIS

  # format:  Each fully	qualified host name on a separate line
  hostname.domain_name

DESCRIPTION

  The /etc/binlog.auth file specifies which remote hosts are allowed to	for-
  ward binlog messages to the local host. For the sake of security, only mes-
  sages	coming from remote hosts listed	in the local /etc/binlog.auth file
  will be logged by the	binlogd	daemon.

  Each remote host name	should appear in a separate line in /etc/binlog.auth.
  A line started with the # character is considered as a comment and is	thus
  ignored.

  A host name must be a	complete domain	name such as trout.zk3.dec.com.	 If a
  domain host name is given, it	must either appear in the local	/etc/hosts
  file or be able to be	resolved by the	name server.

  Note that a host name	can have at most as many characters as defined by the
  MAXHOSTNAMELEN constant in <&lt;sys/param.h>&gt;, although each line in the
  /etc/binlog.auth file	can have up to 512 characters.

  The /etc/binlog.auth file must be owned by root and has a permission of
  0600.

  If the /etc/binlog.auth file does not	exist or it exists but is empty	or
  has no valid remote host names in it,	the system will	assume no remote host
  is allowed to	forward	binlog messages	to the local host.

  To invoke a new version of the /etc/binlog.auth file,	run the	following
  command (as the super	user) to re-initialize the binlogd daemon:

       kill -HUP `cat /var/run/binlogd.pid`

EXAMPLES

  The following	example	provides a typical authorization file:

       # format:  Each fully qualified host name on a separate line
       c3poid.rvo.dec.com
       r2d2id.ckt.dec.com

FILES

  /etc/binlog.auth
	     Location of the authorization file.
