NAME

       approx.conf - configuration file for approx proxy server

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/approx/approx.conf

DESCRIPTION

       Each  non-blank  line  of  the  configuration  file  should  contain  a
       name/value pair, separated by white space.  Comments start with  a  "#"
       character and continue to the end of the line.

       The following names have special meaning:

       port   Specifies the TCP port on which the approx(8) server listens for
              HTTP requests (default: 9999)

       interval
              Specifies the time in minutes after which a cached file will  be
              considered  too  old  to deliver without first checking with the
              remote repository for a  newer  version  (default:  720,  or  12
              hours)

       max_wait
              Specifies  how many seconds an approx(8) process will wait for a
              concurrent download of a file to complete, before attempting  to
              download the file itself (default: 10)

       debug  Specifies whether debugging messages should be printed (default:
              false)

       The other name/value pairs  are  used  to  map  distribution  names  to
       remote repositories.  For example,

              debian          http://debian.mirrors.pair.com
              security        http://security.debian.org/debian-security
