ipwatchd.conf - Configuration file of IPwatchD daemon
IPwatchD daemon reads configuration from file specified with -c on
command line. The file contains keyword-argument pairs, one per line.
Lines beginning with # sign and empty lines are ignored.
Possible keywords and their meanings are as follows:
Specifies configuration mode for network interfaces. In
automatic configuration mode IPwatchD detects all network
interfaces automatically and sets passive protection mode for
them. In manual mode it is up to administrator to specify list
of interfaces and protection modes. Accepted values are
automatic or manual. Default is automatic.
iface Specifies network interface and its protection mode. Value is
accepted only in manual configuration mode. In active protection
mode IPwatchD protects your host before IP takeover by answering
Gratuitous ARP requests received from conflicting system. In
passive protection mode it just records information about IP
conflict through standard syslog interface. Specified interface
must exist and protection mode must be passive or active.
Specifies minimum interval between defensive ARPs in seconds.
Accepted value is number from 0 to 600. Default value is 0.
Specifies absolute path to user-defined script called by
IPwatchD when IP conflict occurs. When there is no script
specified IPwatchD just generates syslog event for every IP
conflict. Specified file must exist. There is no default value.

authpriv, cron, daemon, kern, lpr, mail, news, syslog, user,
uucp, local0, local1, local2, local3, local4, local5, local6 and
