This stream can either be written to standard out, or (more commonly) be

If propagating, it connects to all hosts specified on the command by opening a TCP connection to port 754 (service hprop) and sends the database in encrypted form.

- This option transmits the database with encrypted keys. This is the default if no option is supplied.
- Dump the database on stdout, in a format that can be fed to hpropd.
The following will propagate a database to another machine (which should run hpropd(8)):
$ hprop slave-1 slave-2
