NAME

       dgserver - Provide IPIP tunnel routes to AmprNet clients.

SYNOPSIS

       dgserver [-c conffile] [-i device] [-p port] [-t exptimer] [-d]

DESCRIPTION

       dgserver  accepts specially formatted UDP datagram from AmprNet Dynamic
       Gateway clients.  The datagram supplies the network address and mask of
       a  network  that  the  client  wishes  to  have  routed  to it via IPIP
       encapsulation. An optional password may be supplied to  the  server  to
       authenticate the client to it if required.

       Sending  the  dgserver  program  a  SIGHUP  will  cause it to flush its
       knowledge of the available routes and re-read its configuration file.

OPTIONS

       -c conffile
              specifies a configuration file to read if  the  default  is  not
              desired.

       -i device
              specifies  the  name  of  the  tunnel device to configure tunnel
              routes onto.  The default value if this option is  not  supplied
              is "tunl0".

       -p port
              species  an  optional  UDP port to use if the default of 1234 is
              not being used.

       -t exptimer
              specifies the time interval between refresh messages sent to the
              server.  This should always be set to a value no larger than the
              dynamic route timer being used at the server.  UDP  is  a  lossy
              protocol  so  it  may be wise to make this value at most half of
              the server route  timeout  to  ensure  that  one  lost  datagram
              doesn’t cause the route to be lost.

       -d     causes the daemon stay running in the foreground of the terminal
              in which it was executed. The default is to automatically detach
              from the terminal and run in the background.

       dgserver was written by Terry Dawson <terry@tao.linux.org.au> and based
       on the protocol described by  the  MFNOS  implementation  developed  by
       Barry    Siegfried,    K2MF.    Bug   reports   should   be   sent   to
