NAME
       ethers - Ethernet address to IP number database

DESCRIPTION
       /etc/ethers  contains  48  bit  Ethernet addresses and their corresponding IP numbers, one
       line for each IP number:

	      Ethernet-address	IP-number

       The two items are separated by any number of SPACE and/or TAB  characters.   A  #  at  the
       beginning  of  a  line  starts a comment which extends to the end of the line.  The Ether-
       net-address is written as x:x:x:x:x:x, where x is a hexadecimal number between  0  and  ff
       which  represents  one  byte  of the address, which is in network byte order (big-endian).
       The IP-number may be a hostname which can be resolved by DNS or a dot separated number.

EXAMPLES
       08:00:20:00:61:CA  pal
