NAME

       bnetd.conf - configuration for the Unix Battle.net daemon

DESCRIPTION

       The  file  bnetd.conf  contains information used by the Unix Battle.net daemon bnetd(1) to
       obtain system-specific information such as file locations and policies.

       The file consists of a list of configuration entries and comments.  A comment starts  with
       a  pound  (#)  sign  and continues to the end of the line.  Blank lines and whitespace are
       ignored between entries.  A configuration entry is composed of two fields separated by  an
       equals (=) sign:

              directive = value

       The  directive  field  contains  the name of the configuration item you want to set to the
       value of value.  If the value contains spaces it should be surrounded by  quotation  marks
       (").   The  value  may not contain quotation marks.  Multiple entries are not allowed on a
       single line.

       If the field is Boolean, any of true, false, yes, no, 1, or 0 may be used.  If  the  field
       is numeric, it must be in base ten.  If the field is an address list, it must be delimited
       by commas.  Each element may contain a hostname (or IP) and a  port  number.   If  a  port
       number  is  given,  it  must be preceded by a colon (:).  A colon by itself may be used to
       represent the wildcard address.  If the field is a file  or  directory  path,  use  of  an
       absolute  pathname  is recommended.  The values for iconfile, tosfile, and mpqauthfile are
       not pathnames but just the names of the files.  They must be in the filedir directory.

       Recognized values for directive include:

              filedir   Specifies the path where downloadable files are stored.  These files  are
                        include  the  TOS  (terms  of service), icons, and ad banners.  (Normally

              allow_autoupdate
                        Enable or disable to automatic client update facility.  If  you  want  to
                        allow  different  client  versions to connect, set this to false.  If you
                        want to update all clients to the same version, be sure to also  download
                        the MPQ auth file, and the update MPQ.

              mpqauthfile
                        Specify  the  name  of the MPQ authorization file which must be inside of
                        the filedir directory.  This file is used to determine the current client
                        version.    This  is  only  needed  if  allow_autoupdate  is  turned  on.
                        (Normally "IX86ver1.mpq")

              usersync  Specify the time in seconds between account file saves.   A  value  of  0
                        means to wait until shutdown to save account files and not do do periodic

              userflush Specify the number of seconds of inactivity before  a  user  is  unloaded
                        from  memory  (only  checked  during  file account updates, see usersync.
                        After the account has been unloaded, it  must  be  read  from  disk  when
                        accessed again.

              latency   How  often to send user latency tests to the user, in seconds.  These are
                        used to decide how many "lag bars" to print next to users in channels.

              shutdown_delay
                        Specify the amount of time in seconds to delay shutting down  the  server
                        when it receives a SIGTERM or SIGINT signal(7).

              shutdown_decr
                        You  can  decrease  the  amount  of time to wait by this value by sending
                        another SIGTERM or SIGINT signal(7).

              newaccounts
                        If this value is true then new accounts may be created by  users  on  the
                        system.  Administrators can always use the /addacct chat command.

              kick_oldlogin
                        If  this value is true then a second login by the same user will kick off
                        the first, otherwise the second login will get message saying  that  they
                        are already logged in.

              ask_new_channel
                        If  this value is true, a user using the "Channels" button to join a non-
                        existing channel will be asked if  they  wish  to  create  it  just  like
                        Battle.net.  Otherwise, the channel will be created silently.

              report_all_games
                        If  this  value  is true, all games with more than one player lasting for
                        more than 5 minutes will be logged.  Otherwise,  only  ladder  games  are
                        logged.

              hide_pass_games
                        If  this  value  is true, private (passworded) games will not be shown in
                        the game list just like Battle.net.  Otherwise all games will be listed.

              hide_started_games
                        If this value is true, games which have already stated will not  be  sent
                        to  the  clients.   The  clients filter these games out for Starcraft and
                        Brood War already.

              hide_temp_channels
                        If this value is true, private channels will not be shown in the  channel
                        list just like Battle.net.  Otherwise all channels will be listed.

              extra_commands
                        If  this  value  is true then all the extended chat commands are enabled,
                        otherwise only those which exist on Battle.net are enabled.

              disc_is_loss
                        If this value is true then any disconnect  will  be  treated  as  a  loss
                        (regardless of the setting in ladder games).

              enable_conn_all
                        If  this  value  is true then all users may use the /con and /connections
                        commands.  Otherwise only administrators may use them.

              hide_addr If this value is true then IP addresses will be hidden from non-admins in
                        the output of the /con, /games, /gameinfo, and /netinfo commands.

              chanlog   If  this  value  is true then private channels will be logged to files in
                        the chanlogdir direcotry.  The logging of public (permanent) channels  is
                        controlled in the channelfile file.

              track     Set  this  value  to 0 to disable sending updates to the tracking server.
                        Any other number will set the number of seconds between tracking packets.
                        Try  to use a number above 60 seconds unless you know the tracking server
                        administrator doesn't mind being spammed.

              trackaddrs
                        Specify a comma-delimited list of addresses of tracking servers  to  send
                        updates  to.   The address for the master server is "track.bnetd.org".  A
                        port may  be  specified  after  a  colon  numerically  or  by  name  from
                        /etc/services(5).   If  a  port  number  is not specified, it defaults to
                        6114.

              location  Give a description of the physical location of the server  such  as  "San
                        Diego, CA, USA".  This is reported to the tracking server.

              description
                        Give  a  description of title or role of the server such as "Joe's Spiffy
                        Server".  This is reported to the tracking server.

              url       Give  a  URL  for  the  homepage  or  contact  for  the  server  such  as
                        "http://www.foo.com/joeserv.html".   This  is  reported  to  the tracking
                        server.

              contact_name
                        Give the name of the contact for the  server  such  as  "Joe  Blockhead".
                        This is reported to the tracking server.

              contact_email
                        Give   the   email  address  of  the  contact  for  the  server  such  as
                        "joe@foo.com".  This is reported to the tracking server.

              use_keepalive
                        If this value is set to true, the server will enable  the  TCP  keepalive
                        option to allow the system to detect stale connections.

              servaddrs Specify  the  comma-delimited  list of addresses the server should listen
                        on.  A port may be specified after a colon numerically or  by  name  from
                        /etc/services(5).   If  a  port  number  is not specified, it defaults to
                        6112.

              udptest_port
                        The UDP port number which is assumed  for  clients  if  they  don't  send
                        SESSIONADDR  packets.   If  it  is  set  to zero, the server will use the
                        remote TCP port number as the default UDP port number.
