provides a means of translating the DHCPv6 client database, into a set
of standard configuration file variables. The client database consists
of a series of records. Each record represents a unique lan interface
and a list of attributes, which correspond to that interface. The
attributes are configuration parameters like: host's IP address, NTP
server address, address of the DHCPv6 server, NIS domain name etc for
that interface. With you can list the contents of the database to the
screen, create a set of configuration staging files, or execute direct
edits on existing configuration files using the values contained in the
allows you to specify a list of lan interfaces on the command line
(e.g. whose data needs to be translated to a readable format. If no
lan interface is specified, will process the entries of all interfaces
which are UP. The attributes can be selected for processing by speci‐
fying a combination of one or more filter flags on the command line.
If no filter flag is specified, all the attributes for that lan inter‐
face will be processed.
