NAME

       danted - network proxyserver

SYNOPSIS

       danted [-DLVdhnv] [-N number] [-f file]

DESCRIPTION

       Dante  implements  the  socks  standard  and can function as a firewall
       between networks.

       Dante relays TCP and UDP both from outside the network and in, and from
       inside and out.

       The options are as follows:

       -D     Dante  will  detach from the controlling terminal and run in the
              background as a system daemon.

       -L     Displays the license Dante comes under.

       -Nnumber
              Dante will fork of number copies of itself when  starting.   Can
              be used for very busy servers.

       -V     Verifies config file and exits.

       -d     Enables debugging.

       -ffile Dante will read its configuration from file.

       -h     Shows the currently valid options.

       -n     Disables  TCP  keep-alive  messages.  Normally Dante enables TCP
              keep-alive messages so that connections from machines that  have
              crashed  or for other reasons no longer can be reached time out.

       -v     Displays Dante version.

ENVIRONMENT

       TMPDIR Use TMPDIR for temporary files.  Since Dante uses  lockfiles  it
              is  recommended  that TMPDIR be set to a (local) filesystem with
              low latency.

FILES

       /etc/danted.conf
              Dante server configuration file.
