hesiod.conf - Configuration file for the Hesiod library
The file hesiod.conf determines the behavior of the Hesiod library.
Blank lines and lines beginning with a # character are ignored. All
other lines should be of the form variable = value, where the value
should be a single word. Possible variables and values are:
lhs Specifies the domain prefix used for Hesiod queries. In almost
all cases, you should specify lhs=.ns. The default value if
you do not specify an lhs value is no domain prefix, which is
not compatible with most Hesiod domains.
rhs Specifies the default Hesiod domain; this value may be overrid
den by the HES_DOMAIN environment variable. You must specify an
rhs line for the Hesiod library to work properly.
Specifies which DNS classes Hesiod should do lookups in. Possi
ble values are IN (the preferred class) and HS (the deprecated
class, still used by some sites). You may specify both classes
separated by a comma to try one class first and then the other
if no entry is available in the first class. The default value
of the classes variable is IN,HS.
There default value for lhs should probably be more reasonable.
