NAME
       sockd - network proxyserver

SYNOPSIS
       sockd [-DLVdhnv] [-N number] [-f file] [-p 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 "main servers"	when  starting.	  This
	      can be used for servers that are extremely busy, or to provide a
	      (very) poor mans redundancy setup, as Dante  will	 try  to  make
	      these  "main servers" as independent of each others as possible.

       -V     Verifies config file and exits.

       -dnumber
	      Sets the level of debugging, zero to disable.

       -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).

       -pfile Dante will write the pid of  the	main  process  to  this	 file.
	      file.

       -v     Displays Dante version.

SIGNALS
       SIGHUP Reload the configuration file.  Will also reopen logfiles.

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

ENVIRONMENT
       TMPDIR Use TMPDIR for temporary files.  Dante will use  this  directory
	      for  lockfiles  and memory-mapped files.	It is recommended that
	      TMPDIR be set to a (local) filesystem  with  low	latency.   The
	      directory	 should have read/write/execute permission by both the
	      privileged   and	 unprivileged	userid	 (as   specified    in
	      /etc/sockd.conf), but no other non-privileged users.

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