SOCKD(8)                    System Manager's Manual                   SOCKD(8)



NAME
       sockd - network proxyserver

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

DESCRIPTION
       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.

       -Nnumber
              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.

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

       SIGINFO/SIGUSR1
              Print some information about the servers current state and
              clients.

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

FILES
       /etc/sockd.conf
              Dante server configuration file.
