There are two possiblities to hold information of a certain host. The first is in INFO-<host alias name> in directory $AFD_WORK_DIR/etc. Everything stort in this file will be shown in afd_info dialog. If you have many hosts configured it might be better to store these in the central $AFD_WORK_DIR/etc/host.info file. The format of this file is as follows:
<alias name 1> Text to show. </alias name 1> . . . <alias name n> Text to show. </alias name n>
Its also possible to specify both types, it will then first look into $AFD_WORK_DIR/etc/host.info and if the host alias name is not found in there try to get the information from $AFD_WORK_DIR/etc/INFO-<host alias name>.
