Yes, something like that, except the problem is that:
<quote>
       This file is read by the route(8) and netstat(8) utilities.  Only Class
A, B
       or C networks are supported, partitioned networks (i.e., network/26 or
       network/28) are not supported by this facility.
</quote>

... so I'm not sure if the networks file could be used since a netmask would be
required. 

In my 1st example, I used a /24 mask, but I'd also like any partitioned network
to work as well, e.g.:

10.1.1.0/25           Customer1
10.1.1.128/25         Customer2

... and the example of 10.1.1.142 below would then be displayed as follows:

10.1.1.142 (Customer2.14)
