       vanessa_socket_pipe - Trivial TCP/IP pipe based on libvanessa_socket


       vanessa_socket_pipe [options]


       A TCP/IP pipe is a user space programme that listens for TCP/IP connections on port on the
       local host and when a client connects makes a  connection  to  a  TCP  port,  possibly  on
       another host. Once both connections are established data sent on one connection is relayed
       to the other, hence forming a bi-directional pipe.

       Uses include enabling connections to specific ports on hosts behind a packet filter.

       This  code  is  intended  primarily  as  an  example  of  how  many  of  the  features  of
       libvanessa_socket work.


              Maximum  number  of  connections  to accept simultaneously. A value of zero sets no
              limit on the number of simultaneous connections.  (default 0)

              Turn on verbose debuging to stderr.

              Display this message.

              Port to listen on. (mandatory)

              Address to listen on. May be a hostname or an IP  address.   If  not  defined  then
              listen on all local addresses.

              Turn  off  lookup  of  hostnames  and portnames. That is, hosts must be given as IP
              addresses and ports must be given as numbers.

              Define a port to connect to. If not specified -l|--listen_port will be used.

              Define host to connect to.  May be a hostname or an IP address. (mandatory)

              Only log errors. Overriden by -d|--debug.

              Idle timeout in seconds.  Value of zero sets infinite timeout.  (default 1800)

       Notes: Default value for binary flags is off.
              -L|--listen_port and -o|--outgoing_host must be defined.
