       qpsmtpd-forkserver - Fork-on-demand server for qpsmtpd


       qpsmtpd-forkserver [options]


       qpsmtpd-forkserver  is  the qpsmtpd frontend script which binds to the SMTP TCP socket and
       forks as clients connect.


       --port port, -p port
              Binds to a specific port, instead of the default 2525.

       --user user, -u user
              On startup, switch to run as user instead of the starting user.  Applies only  when
              started as root (as is normal when listening on port 25).

       --limit-connections limit, -c limit
              Accept  at  most  limit  simultaneous  connections.  Inbound connections beyondthis
              limit will be deferred or refused.

       --max-from-ip limit, -m limit
              Accept at most limit simultaneous connections from any given IP address;  does  not
              override --limit-connections, if set.

       --listen-address addr, -l addr
              Bind  to  the local address addr, instead of the default behavior of binding to all
              interfaces.  Can be specified multiple times to bind to more than one interface  or
              local address.

       --detach, -d
              Detach  from  the  controlling  terminal at startup, to run as a standalone daemon.
              See also --pid-file.

       --pid-file filename
              Upon startup, and  after  daemonizing  if  applicable,  write  the  process  ID  to
              filename, for use by sysvinit control scripts or similar utilities.
