hello list -
I could not find a way to add $GENERATE records into BIND through freeside.
is anyone using $GENERATE records? I was thinking about hacking that
little option into freeside. These types of records are very handy for
ISP's with lots of IP addresses for dialup, broadband, etc.
a refresher for those that forgot ;-) -
$GENERATE 20-220 dialup-192-168-100-$.mydomain.net. A 192.168.100.$
dialup-192-168-100-20.mydomain.net IN A 192.168.100.20
dialup-192-168-100-21.mydomain.net IN A 192.168.100.21
dialup-192-168-100-220.mydomain.net IN A 192.168.100.220
it's a neat one-liner to make the zone files look a bit more readable,
and saves you from having to type a million lines.
