NAME

  bptojdb - Converts bootptab entries into permanent, static IP	entries	for
  JOIN databases.

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/sbin/bptojdb [-m	 | -f] filename

OPTIONS

  -m  Create client IDs	for Microsoft DHCP clients.  Microsoft does not	use
      the client's MAC address by itself as the	client identifier.  Instead,
      it prepends a 01 (Ethernet) to the MAC address and changes the hardware
      type to 0	(generic).  If the clients in your bootptab file are Micro-
      soft clients, you	will need to use the -m	option.

  -f  Create client IDs	for FTP	Software's DHCP	clients.  FTP Software does
      not use the client's MAC address by itself as the	client identifier.
      Instead, it creates a 16-byte client identifier with the prefix "cid-".
      If the clients in	your bootptab file are FTP Software DHCP clients, you
      will need	to use the -f option.

DESCRIPTION

  The bptojdb program reads entries in a standard bootptab file	and creates
  permanent, static IP entries for the JOIN databases.	After reading the
  bootptab file, bptojdb displays to the standard output entries in a format
  suitable for the jdbmod utility. Each	MAC address in the bootptab file is
  given	a static IP address with a permanent lease.  To	store the information
  in the JOIN databases, run jdbmod with the converted data. For example:

       bptojdb bootptab	| jdbmod

FILES

  /var/join/*.hsh

  /var/join/*.btr
