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

NAME

dump_sockdfc - Display contents of frozen configuratyion file for SOCKS server

SYNOPSIS

dump_sockdfc [infile]

DESCRIPTION

dump_sockdfc reads in a frozen configuration file for the SOCKS server and produces a listing of its contents on the standard output.
 
The argument is optional; if omitted, /etc/sockd.fc is assumed.
 
The frozen configuration file is produced by make_sockdfc and is essentially the memory image of the parsed configuration file. Using the frozen configuration file can reduce the start-up delay of the SOCKS server program since it no longer has to parse the file contents.
 
When the SOCKS server starts, it always looks for the frozen configuration file /etc/sockd.fc first. If that file is not found, it then tries to use the plain-text configuration file /etc/sockd.conf. If you use frozen configuration, you must remember to run make_sockdfc every time after you modify the plain-text file or the SOCKS server will continue to use the frozen file of a previous configuration.

FILES

/etc/sockd.fc, /etc/sockd.conf
