3.11.10. IdenticalClients Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

This optional parameter specifies a list of other clients that have an identical setup. You can use this parameter to avoid having to create separate Client clauses for lots of otherwise identical clients. The value is a list of client names or addresses, separated by white space or comma. Each client may be specified as an IP address (IPv4 or IPv6), a MAC address in the form MAC:aa-bb-cc-dd-ee-ff, or an IPv4 or IPv6 CIDR address in the form nn.nn.nn/nn. You can have any number of IdenticalClients lines.
When you use the Client-Id check item, it matches against the name or address in the <Client xxxxxx> line, but not against any of the values listed in IdenticalClients.
