       nsd-xfer - AXFR client to transfer zones from a name server


       nsd-xfer  [-4]  [-6]  [-a  address[@port]]  [-p  port]  [-s serial] [-T
       tsiginfo] [-v] -z zone -f file servers


       Nsd-xfer is program to transfer zones from a name  server  using  AXFR.
       NSD is a complete implementation of an authoritative DNS nameserver.


       -4     Only send to IPv4 addresses.

       -6     Only send to IPv6 addresses.

       -a address[@port]
              Specify the source address (and port) to send from.

       -f file
              The file to store the zone in.

       -p port
              Specify the port to send to.

       -s serial
              Specify  the  serial  of  the  current  zone.  The  zone is only
              transferred if the master server  has  a  zone  with  a  greater
              serial number.

       -T tsiginfo
              Use  TSIG  to  verify  the zone transfer. The tsiginfo file must
              contain the TSIG key  information.  The  file  is  removed  upon
              successful  reading  of the key. The format of the tsiginfo file
              is described in the doc/README file (section 3.3).

       -v     Be more verbose.

       -z zone
              Specify the zone to receive.
