       sfssd - SFS server daemon


       sfssd [-d] [-S sfs-config-file] [-f config-file]


       sfssd is the main server daemon run on SFS servers.  sfssd itself does
       not serve any file systems.  Rather, it acts as a meta-server,
       accepting connections on TCP port 4 and passing them off to the
       appropriate daemon.  Ordinarily, sfssd passes all file system
       connections to sfsrwsd, and all user-key management connections to
       sfsauthd.  However, the sfssd_config file () allows a great deal of
       customization, including support for ‘‘virtual servers,’’ multiple
       versions of the SFS software coexisting, and new SFS-related services
       other than the file system and user authentication.


       -d  Stay in the foreground and print messages to standard error rather
           than redirecting them to the system log.

       -f config-file
           Specify an alternate sfssd configuration file.  The default, if -f
           is unspecified, is first to look for /etc/sfs/sfssd_config, then

       -S sfs-config-file
           Specify an alternate name for the sfs_config file.  If sfs-config-
           file begins with a /, then only this file is parsed.  Otherwise,
           all the directories /usr/local/share/sfs and /etc/sfs are searched
           in order, and if no file named sfs-config-file is found but a file
           sfs_config is found, that file is parsed.  However, the process
           does not look in /etc/sfs if sfs-config-file is found in
           /usr/local/share/sfs.  Thus, if you create a file /etc/sfs/sfs-
           config-file, it will override /etc/sfs/sfs_config while still
           incorporating the defaults from /usr/local/share/sfs/sfs_config.

       The full documentation for SFS is maintained as a Texinfo manual.  If
       the info and SFS programs are properly installed at your site, the
       command info SFS should give you access to the complete manual.
