How To Use

What you need to do is:
- Collect all your Amazon AWS credentials: AccessKeyID and SecretAccessKey pairs.
- Create a text file and name it 'key.pairs'. No '.txt' file extension, case-sensitive.
- Write down all your key pairs in that file according to this format:
where pairName is a friendly name of your choice that must not contain a comma.
- Use a new line for each key pair you add.
- Place the 'key.pairs' file in the same folder as ACC-R53C.
- Start ACC-R53C and click "Load credentials...".
- That is all you need to get started!

Quick Tips

- Zone root (Apex) records are simply added using the @ (at) sign, just like a BIND zone file.
- To edit a multi-line record, use SHIFT+Enter. This is native to DataGridView.
- You can add DNS names without appending Zone Name; it will be appended for you
Examples (for zone = zone.tld):
Type 'sub1.sub2.sub3' to get ''
Type 'www' to get ''
and so forth...
