       vdetelweb - Virtual Distributed Ethernet Telnet and/or Web management module


       vdetelweb  [ --web ] [ --telnet ] [ --nodename nodename ] [ --daemon ] [ --rcfile rcfile ]


       vdetelweb implements a tiny telnet  server  and/or  a  tiny  web  server  for  the  remote
       management of a VDE2 switch.


       -w, --web
              start the web server. At least one of --web or --telnet must be set.

       -t, --telnet
              start the telnet server. At least one of --web or --telnet must be set.

       -n, --nodename nodename
              specify the nodename as seen from remote connections (e.g. in the command prompt or
              in the web page title). uname nodename is used when this option is not specified.

       -d, --daemon
              run as a daemon, using syslog for logging.

       -f, --rcfile rcfile
              rc file to set the initial switch configuration.   When  not  specified,  vdetelweb
              searches  for ~/.vde/vdetelwebrc and /etc/vde/vdetelwebrc. At leas one rc file must
              exist and be readable.

       -h, --help
              print help. please use it for a more complete list of options.

              is the managemnt socket used to communicate with the vde_switch.  (This option must
              match the path used in the -M option for the vde_switch).


       Virtual  Distributed  Ethernet  is  not  related in any way with ("Verband der
       Elektrotechnik, Elektronik und  Informationstechnik"  i.e.  the  German  "Association  for
       Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies").
