sockd - network proxyserver
sockd [-DLVdhnv] [-N number] [-f file]
Dante implements the socks standard and can function as a firewall
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 reasons no longer can be reached time out.
Note that this can take several hours. See also the "timeout"
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
TMPDIR Use TMPDIR for temporary files. Since Dante uses lockfiles it
is recommended that TMPDIR be set to a (local) filesystem with
Dante server configuration file.
