Re: [chrony-users] Using symbolic network names in /etc/chrony.conf file?

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

When you specify a hostname, that's it. It's a 32bit address (ipv4 of course).  Throwing a netmask on it does nothing except specify that your network segment has 64,510 usable addresses.  Now if you edit /etc/networks and add mynet then you can use the mynet/16 notation in your chrony.conf

At least for now, I'll fix the parser to not allow slashes after
hostnames in the allow/deny directives/commands.
