""> CIDR_TABLE(5) CIDR_TABLE(5) NAME cidr_table - format of Postfix CIDR tables SYNOPSIS postmap -q "string" cidr:/usr/local/etc/postfix/filename postmap -q - cidr:/usr/local/etc/postfix/filename <inputfile DESCRIPTION The Postfix mail system uses optional access control tables. These tables are usually in dbm or db format. Alternatively, access control tables can be specified in CIDR (Classless Inter-Domain Routing) form. To find out what types of lookup tables your Postfix sys- tem supports use the postconf -m command. To test lookup tables, use the postmap command as described in the SYNOPSIS above. TABLE FORMAT The general form of a Postfix CIDR table is: network_address/network_mask result When a search string matches the specified network block, use the corresponding result value. Specify to match every address. network_address result When a search string matches the specified network address, use the corresponding result value. blank lines and comments Empty lines and whitespace-only lines are ignored, as are lines whose first non-whitespace character is a `#'. multi-line text A logical line starts with non-whitespace text. A line that starts with whitespace continues a logi- cal line. SEARCH ORDER Patterns are applied in the order as specified in the table, until a pattern is found that matches the search string. EXAMPLE SMTPD ACCESS MAP /usr/local/etc/postfix/ smtpd_client_restrictions = ... cidr:/usr/local/etc/postfix/client.cidr ... /usr/local/etc/postfix/client.cidr: # Rule order matters. Put more specific whitelist entries # before more general blacklist entries.
