dgserver - Provide IPIP tunnel routes to AmprNet clients.
dgserver [-c conffile] [-i device] [-p port] [-t exptimer] [-d]
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.
specifies a configuration file to read if the default is not
specifies the name of the tunnel device to configure tunnel
routes onto. The default value if this option is not supplied
species an optional UDP port to use if the default of 1234 is
not being used.
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.

on the protocol described by the MFNOS implementation developed by
Barry Siegfried, K2MF. Bug reports should be sent to
