NAME

       afserver - active port forwarder server

SYNOPSIS

       afserver [ options ]

DESCRIPTION

       Afserver is a port forwarding program designed to be efficient and easy
       to use. It listens for  incoming  afclient  connections  at  listenport
       (default  listenport  is 50126). After successful client authorization,
       afserver listens  for  incoming  user  connections.  When  a  new  user
       connection  is  opened,  all  the  data  is  redirected  to  previously
       connected afclient, which redirects it  to  the  specified  destination
       host:port.

EXAMPLES

       afserver
         program starts with default options (become a daemon)

       afserver -v
         verbose mode is enabled (program won’t enter daemon mode)

       afserver -n localhost -l 5435 -m 6375
         program will listen on localhost:5435 for users and on localhost:6375
       for clients
