       sockd - network proxyserver

       sockd [-DLVdhnv] [-N number] [-f file]

       Dante  implements the socks standard and can function as a
       firewall between networks.

       Dante relays TCP and UDP both from outside the network and
       in, and from inside and out.

       The options are as follows:

       -D     Dante will detach from the controlling terminal and
	      run in the background as a system daemon.

       -L     Displays the license Dante comes under.

	      Dante will fork of number	 copies	 of  itself  when
	      starting.	 Can be used for very busy servers.

       -V     Verifies config file and exits.

       -d     Enables debugging.

       -ffile Dante will read its configuration from file.

       -h     Shows the currently valid options.

       -n     Disables	TCP  keep-alive messages.  Normally Dante
	      enables TCP keep-alive messages so that connections
	      from  machines  that have crashed or for other rea-
	      sons no longer can be reached time out.  Note  that
	      this  can	 take several hours.  See also the "time-
	      out" option in sockd.conf(5).

       -v     Displays Dante version.

       SIGHUP Reload the configuration file.   Will  also  reopen
	      logfiles,	 but  note  that  you  can not change the
	      value of logoutput after starting the server.

	      Print some information about  the	 servers  current
	      state and clients.

       TMPDIR Use  TMPDIR  for temporary files.	 Since Dante uses
	      lockfiles it is recommended that TMPDIR be set to a
	      (local) filesystem with low latency.
