NAME

       fastd - Fast and Secure Tunnelling Daemon

SYNOPSIS

       fastd OPTION...

DESCRIPTION

       fastd is a very small VPN daemon which tunnels IP packets and Ethernet frames over UDP. It
       supports various modern encryption and authentication schemes and  can  be  used  in  many
       different network topologies (1:1, 1:n, meshed).

OPTIONS

       --help, -h
              Shows a help text.

       --version, -v
              Shows the fastd version.

       --daemon, -d
              Runs fastd in the background.

       --pid-file <filename>
              Writes fastd's PID to the specified file.

       --status-socket <socket>
              Configure a socket to get fastd's status.

       --config, -c <filename>
              Loads a config file. - can be specified to read a config file from stdin. More than
              one config file can be loaded.

       --config-peer <filename>
              Loads a config file for a single peer. The filename will be used as the peer name.

       --config-peer-dir <dir>
              Loads all files from a directory as peer configs. On SIGHUP fastd will reload  peer
              directories.

       --user <user>
              Sets the user to run fastd as.

       --group <group>
              Sets the group to run fastd as.

       --log-level error|warn|info|verbose|debug|debug2
              Sets  the  stderr  log  level; default is info if no alternative log destination is
              configured.

       --syslog-level error|warn|info|verbose|debug|debug2
              Sets the log level for syslog output; default is not to use syslog.

       --syslog-ident <ident>
              Sets the syslog identification; default is fastd.

       --hide-ip-addresses
              Hides IP addresses in log output.

       --hide-mac-addresses
              Hides MAC addresses in log output.

       --mode, -m tap|multitap|tun
              Sets the mode of the interface; default is TAP mode.

       --interface, -i <name>
              Sets the name of the TUN/TAP interface to use.  If  not  specified,  default  names
              specified by the system will be used.

       --mtu, -M <mtu>
              Sets the MTU; must be at least 576.

       --bind, -b <address>[:<port>]
              Sets  the  bind  address. Address can be an IPv4 address or an IPv6 address, or the
              keyword any. IPv6 addresses must be put in square brackets.

              By default fastd will to bind to a random port  for  both  IPv4  and  IPv6.  It  is
              currently not possible to specify an IPv6 link-local address on the command line.

       --protocol, -p <protocol>
              Sets   the   handshake   protocol.   Currently   the  only  protocol  available  is
              ec25519-fhmqvc,  which  provides  a  secure  authentication  of  peers   based   on
              public/secret keys.

       --method <method>
              Sets the encryption method.

       --forward
              Enables  forwarding  of  packets  between peers; read the full documentation before
              use!

       --on-pre-up <command>
              Sets a shell command to execute before interface creation.

       --on-up <command>
              Sets a shell command to execute after interface creation.

       --on-down <command>
              Sets a shell command to execute before interface destruction.

       --on-post-down <command>
              Sets a shell command to execute after interface destruction.

       --on-connect <command>

              Sets a shell command to execute to check a connection attempt by an unknown peer.

       --verify-config
              Checks the configuration and exits.
