126.96.36.199 Using a #INCLUDE LMHOSTS File
NBT can read LMHOSTS files that are located on other computers. This allows the use of a centralized LMHOSTS file that can be accessed through a computer's local LMHOSTS file. Using a centralized LMHOSTS file still requires each computer to have a local LMHOSTS file.
To access a centralized LMHOSTS file, a computer's local LMHOSTS file can have an entry with the #INCLUDE tag for the location of the centralized file as the following example.
In this example, NBT includes the LMHOSTS file on the public shared folder of the server. An implementation MUST detect circular #INCLUDE directives and stop any further processing of the file and of the query.
