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

       sockd - network proxyserver

       sockd [-DLVdhnv] [-N number] [-f file] [-p 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 "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.

              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.

       -v     Displays Dante version.

       SIGHUP Reload the configuration file.  Will also reopen logfiles.

              Print some information about the servers current state and

       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.

              Dante server configuration file.
