danted - network proxyserver
] [-N number
] [-p file
implements the socks standard and can function as a firewall
relays TCP and UDP both from outside the network and in, and from
inside and out.
The options are as follows:
- Dante will detach from the controlling terminal and
run in the background as a system daemon.
- 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. It is unlikely that setting this number to
anything higher than the number of CPUs will improve performance.
- Verifies config file and exits.
- Sets the level of debugging, zero to disable.
- Dante will read its configuration from
- Shows the currently valid options.
- 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
- Dante will write the pid of the main process to this
- Displays Dante version.
- Reload the configuration file. Will also reopen
- Print some information about the servers current state and
- 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/danted.conf),
but no other non-privileged users.
