    1212== Roots == 
    13 A Root is sort of a placeholder that allows you to group your network logically. The first grouping that comes to mind is ipv4 and ipv6 (since you can't mix them in the internal tree structure anyway). So you may want to create two root, e.g. "My IPv4 Addresses" and "My IPv6 Addresses". Another useful grouping you could use is if you have address space from more than one RIR. So you could have "My RIPE v4 addys" and "My ARIN v4 addys". <screenshot> You can come up with several roots according to your needs. The software will also create some roots automatically when importing configurations. When you create a root, you will be prompted for a name and a description, and you will need to tick the IPv6 box if the root will be used for v6 addresses. You will also need to assign privileges to the user groups. The admin group can always read and write anything, but you can restrict privileges to the other users. Each node in the tree, from the root down to the single address, can have different privileges.

    1515== Importing your data == 
    16 Your next step will be defining some networks to work on. If you felt the need for an address management tool, it's likely that you have an ''allocation'' from a RIR. !HaCi will let you pull in the data from RIPE database by using [HaCiImportRoutes ASN Routes] from the menu. This will find all inetnum and route objects tied to your AS number (and inet6num and route6 respectively for IPv6), and place them under a newly created root named after your AS number.  
     16Your next step will be defining some networks to work on. You can [HaCiAddNetwork manually define your address blocks] but if you felt the need for an address management tool, it's likely that you have an ''allocation'' from a RIR. !HaCi will let you pull in the data from RIPE database by using [HaCiImportRoutes ASN Routes] from the menu. This will find all inetnum and route objects tied to your AS number (and inet6num and route6 respectively for IPv6), and place them under a newly created root named after your AS number.

    1818Of course, you can define your topmost network manually and skip the above step if you don't have an AS number.
