bp.conf question

Would it be possible to do something like:

CLIENT_NAME = 'uname -n'
 
to pick up the clients name and substitue it?

Even if possible

this would not be a good idea if you had a dedicated interface for the backup traffic.

Don't think so.

bp.conf is a configuration file and not a shell script. I don't think command substitution would be carried out.
