       nets - JOIN DHCP server database

       The  nets  file	is employed by joind, the JOIN DHCP server, to tell it
       which networks to administer and the ranges of IP  addresses  available
       for dynamic assignment on each of those networks.

       Blank  lines  and lines beginning with the number sign (#) are ignored.
       Entries are separated from one another by newline characters.   Entries
       consist	of  three  fields:  the	 network  number  (expressed  as an IP
       address), the IP address or name of a host running joind, which dynami‐
       cally  configures  clients  on  the  network,  and a range of available
       addresses for dynamic allocation to hosts on  the  net.	The  range  is
       expressed  as  a	 pair of IP addresses separated with a dash (-). There
       must be no whitespace separating the dash from the IP addresses.

       Several servers may administer a single network, and  a	single	server
       may administer several networks. Each network-server pair may have sev‐
       eral ranges of IP addresses available for dynamic allocation.  The net‐
       work and server IP addresses do not have to be repeated for each entry.
       A line containing a single field is assumed to be an IP range with  the
       same  server and network as the previous entry: a line of two fields is
       assumed to be a server address and IP range with the  same  network  as
       the preceding entry.

       The  ranges of addresses served by each cooperating server must be dis‐
       joint.  This condition is checked by the server on startup.
