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 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.

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.
