configures the multi-connection support for
. It reads a connection/routing table and outputs it via a tcp
socket to all connected Anytun
servers. When the control daemon is
restarted with a new connection/routing table all Anytun
automatically load the new configuration. Please make sure to protect that
information as it contains the connection keys.
This option instructs anytun-controld
to run in foreground instead of becoming a daemon which is the default.
-u, --username <username>
run as this user. If no group is specified
(-g) the default group of the user is used. The default is to not drop
-g, --groupname <groupname>
run as this group. If no username is specified
( -u) this gets ignored. The default is to not drop privileges.
-C, --chroot <path>
Instruct anytun-controld to run in a
chroot jail. The default is to not run in chroot.
-P, --write-pid <filename>
Instruct anytun-controld to write
it’s pid to this file. The default is to not create a pid file.
add log target to logging system. This can be
invoked several times in order to log to different targets at the same time.
Every target hast its own log level which is a number between 0 and 5. Where 0
means disabling log and 5 means debug messages are enabled.
The file target can be used more the once with different levels. If no target is
provided at the command line a single target with the config
The following targets are supported:
log to syslog daemon, parameters
log to file, parameters
log to standard output, parameters
log to standard error, parameters
This option instructs Anytun to run in
debug mode. It implicits -D (don’t daemonize) and adds a log
target with the configuration stdout:5 (logging with maximum level). In
future releases there might be additional output when this option is
-f, --file <path>
The path to the file which holds the sync
-X, --control-host <hostname|ip>[:<port>]
fetch the config from this host. The default
is not to use a control host and therefore this is empty. Mind that the port
can be omitted in which case port 2323 is used. If you want to specify an ipv6
address and a port you have to use [ and ] to separate the address from the
port, eg.: [::1]:1234. If you want to use the default port [ and ] can be
Most likely there are some bugs in Anytun
. If you find a bug, please let
the developers know at email@example.com. Of course, patches are preferred.
