NAME

       bnetd - Unix Battle.net daemon

SYNOPSIS

       bnetd [-f] [-c configfile] [-d dumpfile]

DESCRIPTION

       bnetd  is  a program that will eventually completely emulate a Blizzard
       Battle.net  server.   Currently  Starcraft,  Brood  War,  Diablo,   and
       Warcraft II BNE are supported as clients.

       It  is  known  to work under most versions of Unix and can also be used
       under Windows as a win32 console application.

OPTIONS

       -c --config
              Use this configuration file instead of the  compiled-in  default
              location.

       -d --hexdump
              Put  a  hex dump of packets sent and received into the specified
              file.

       -f --foreground
              The  server  normally  acts  as  a  daemon  and  goes  into  the
              background.  This forces the server to run in the foreground.

       -h --help --usage
              Print server usage information and exit.

       -v --version
              Print its version number and exit.
