Yes, i think so! But while you're at it, may be a general mechanism
for reading ip-addresses from files into zones would be nice?

I now have split my internet zone into trusted, normal and blacklisted
hosts using a params file. This works great, except for a minor
inconvenience of adding the interface name in front of every host.
Reading addresses from a file indeed would be nice in my case...

Kind regards, Pieter Ennes.

 Pas op de muonen!
