I have the following file:
proto udp resolv-retry infinite nobind #Single line of those bellow, I've added multiple for variations of it remote fi.server.com 50505 remote us-cityone.server.com 5050 remote uk-citytwo.server.com 50500 remote us-citythree.server.com 56546 remote sweden.server.com 6546546 rest of config file..
Let me be more clear, this is a OpenVPN conf file. I want to replace only that line that starts with
remote servername 5555 - server name a different one.
I've added multiple
remote servername 5555 lines just for an example, because they all represent variations that I might occur.
I want to match middle column only,
us-newyorkcity.server.com etc and replace it using
sed with different name.
Why pattern like this, doesn't work?
sed -i.bak 's/\w+(-|\.)\.?\w+\.?\.com/g' filename
I've tried this one as well..
sed -i.bak 's/\w+(-|\.)\.?\w+\.?\.\w+/g' filename
Further note, from the example
server.com part is a static one. Rest is changed.
Thanks for help!
