This information is used to configure the network interface for each host.
Every local area network has a convention for determining which internet
address is used for broadcast requests. Normally this is an address of
aaa.bbb.ccc.0. The difference
between these two forms is whether all of the bits in the last number
are ones or zeroes respectively. You must find out which convention is
used at your establishment and tell cfengine using a declaration of the
broadcast: any:: ones # or zeros, or zeroes
In most cases you can use the generic class
any, since all of the
hosts on the same subnet have to use the same convention. If your
configuration file encompasses several different subnets with different
conventions then you will need to use a more specific.
Cfengine computes the actual value of the broadcast address using the value specified above and the netmask See section 3.8.35 netmask.
