NAME
  ipnodes - The	IP node	name database

SYNOPSIS

  /etc/ipnodes

DESCRIPTION

  The ipnodes file contains information	regarding the known IP nodes (both
  IPv4 and IPv6) on the	network.  For each node	a single line should be
  present with the following information:

	IP_address canonical_nodename aliases

  Items	are separated by any number of blanks or tab characters, or both.
  The #	(number	sign) indicates	the beginning of a comment; characters up to
  the end of the line are not interpreted by routines which search the file.

  Network addresses, both IPv4 and IPv6, are specified in the IPv6 notation
  using	the inet_pton()	routine	from the Internet address manipulation
  library.  Node names may contain any printable character other than a	field
  delimiter, newline, or comment character.

RELATED	INFORMATION

  Functions: getaddrinfo(3), getnameinfo(3), inet_pton(3).
