hello ,
i will explain but not with full detalis caz its too much
1- [OPTIONS_FILE]
here is your modem genral info serial number pakge version  men hardware and software ifo
2-[SECURITY]
user name and passowrd the user name normaly admin
and for user possible to change the password
3-[NMS]
Planning for a Network Management System
Effective planning for a network management system requires that a number of network management tasks be performed. The network management system should discover the network inventory, monitor the health and status of devices and provide alerts to conditions that impact system performance.

NMS systems make use of various protocols for the purpose they serve. For example, SNMP protocol allows them to simply gather the information from the various devices down the network hierarchy. NMS software is responsible for identification of the problem, the exact source of the problem and solving them. The NMS systems not only are responsible for the detection of faults but also for collecting the statistics of the devices over a period of time. They may include a library where the previous network statistical data over a period of time is stored along with the problems and the solutions that worked in the past. This library can come useful in case a fault is found. NMS software can consult the library and search for the best possible method to resolve the problem.
4-[VLAN]
A virtual LAN, commonly known as a VLAN, is a group of hosts with a common set of requirements that communicate as if they were attached to the same broadcast domain, regardless of their physical location. A VLAN has the same attributes as a physical LAN, but it allows for end stations to be grouped together even if they are not located on the same network switch. Network reconfiguration can be done through software instead of physically relocating devices.
5-[ETH0_1]
This line ... You'll be setting up a static public IP on eth0 and a static private IP on eth0:1
6-[DNS_1]
The Domain Name System (DNS) is a distributed hierarchical naming system for computers, services, or any resource connected to the Internet or a private network. It associates various information with domain names assigned to each of the participants. Most importantly, it translates domain names meaningful to humans into the numerical (binary) identifiers associated with networking equipment for the purpose of locating and addressing these devices worldwide. An often-used analogy to explain the Domain Name System is that it serves as the "phone book" for the Internet by translating human-friendly computer hostnames into IP addresses.

This is where your BUC/LNB LO translations are.
[FREQ_TRANS]
     down_translation = 10750.000000 --- LNB LO
     up_translation = 13050.000000 ----BUC LO

This tells the modem what the receive frequency is in L-Band (1379.0249MHz) and the carrier bandwidth. The tx_freq will stay at 1000000 until the modem receives the timeplan on which to transmit from the hub.
