bidentd - Bisqwit's TCP/IP Identification Protocol daemon
[ -qq | -q | -v | -vv | -vvv ]
is a daemon for the intenet Identification Protocol
described by RFC 1413. It supports recursive IP masquerade, where a machine
has Internet access through a masquerading machine which itself has Internet
access through another masquerading machine, and so on. The program requires
no setup (no config files required). It is designed to be run from the
Internet superserver (inetd).
requires no command-line arguments, but some are supported
though. Explained below.
The following options control the amount of information that is dumped to the
system log. Options may be specified separately or in group: -qq equals -q -q.
- Output nothing to the log.
- Output only fatal errors to the log.
- (no option)
- If no option is specified, the log includes one line for
every reponse sent in addition to any fatal errors.
- Be a little more verbose than when no option is
- Output everything that -v outputs and additional debug
- Output a lot of debug information in addition to everything
that -v outputs.
- This file is required by bidentd operation
- If masquerade support is desired, this file is needed.
- This file will be used for masquerading connection tracking
if the kernel is from 2.4-series.
