NAME
       tnamed, in.tnamed - TCP/IP Trivial name server

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/etc/in.tnamed [ -v ]

DESCRIPTION
       tnamed  is a server that supports the TCP/IP Name Server Protocol.  The
       name server operates at  the  port  indicated  in  the  "name"  service
       description  (see  services(5)),  and  is  invoked  by inetd(8C) when a
       request is made to the name server.

       Two known clients of this service are the MIT PC/IP software the Bridge
       boxes.

OPTIONS
       -v     Invoke the daemon in verbose mode.

BUGS
       The protocol implemented by this program is obsolete.  Its  use  should
       be phased out in favor of the Internet Domain protocol.  See named(8C).
