Manual Page: SOCKD(8)
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.
