DESCRIPTION

       miscellaneous  settings  and routes.  A line can be commented using the
       standard comment character #.

              parens ({}) a set of keywords control the behavior of the route.
              Each  route  can  contain three address specifications; from, to
              and via.  A route is selected for  a  connection  based  on  the
              values  within the route block.  The route block can contain the

              sign.), a hostname, or a domainname (designated by  the  leading
              '.').    Each  address  can  be  followed  by  a  optional  port
              specifier.

              as value.
