NAME

       dump_sockdfc  -   Display  contents  of  frozen configuratyion file for
       SOCKS server

SYNOPSIS

       dump_sockdfc [infile]

DESCRIPTION

       dump_sockdfc reads in a frozen configuration file for the SOCKS  server
       and produces a listing of its contents on the standard output.

       The argument is optional; if omitted, /etc/sockd.fc is assumed.

       The  frozen  configuration  file  is  produced  by  make_sockdfc and is
       essentially the memory image of the parsed  configuration  file.  Using
       the  frozen  configuration  file  can  reduce the start-up delay of the
       SOCKS server program since it no longer has to parse the file contents.

       When   the  SOCKS  server  starts,  it  always  looks  for  the  frozen
       configuration file /etc/sockd.fc first. If that file is not  found,  it
       then tries to use the plain-text configuration file /etc/sockd.conf. If
       you use frozen configuration, you must  remember  to  run  make_sockdfc
       every  time  after  you  modify the plain-text file or the SOCKS server
       will continue to use the frozen file of a previous configuration.

FILES

       /etc/sockd.fc, /etc/sockd.conf
