NAME

     securenet -- ypserv(8) configuration file for secure networks

     item is the network mask. The second item is the network.


EXAMPLES

     A configuration file might appear as follows:

     #
     # Only my local net is secure.
     #
     255.255.255.0 139.58.253.0

     weak security.
