NAME

eb_client_linux_kernel - send entropy data to /dev/random

DESCRIPTION

eb_client_linux_kernel v1.0, (C) 2009-2012 by folkert@vanheusden.com To keep the entropy buffer of the local linux kernel filled-up, start client_linux_kernel as a root user. If you want the kernel buffers to be filled much earlier (the default is when it only has 128 bits left), then write a new value to: "/proc/sys/kernel/random/write_wakeup_threshold". E.g. 512.
-i host eb-host to connect to
-l file log to file 'file'
-s log to syslog
-n do not fork
-P file file to write the PID to
-X file file to read the password from
