NAME

       emp_hub - Empire multiplexer

SYNOPSIS

       emp_hub [-persistent] [-debug] [-help] [-mirror] host port localport

DESCRIPTION

       emp_hub  allows  multiple clients to simultaneously connect to a single
       Empire country.  This allows you to use both a fast and a smart  client
       simultaneously.  It also permits multiple corulers to log in at once.

   Parameters
       host        Hostname of the upstream server.

       port        TCP/IP port number the empire server is running on.

       localport   TCP/IP  port number the emp_hub should listen to for
                   incoming client connections.

       -mirror     Copy commands and replies to all clients  using  new
                   protocols.   Currently only the lafe client is aware
                   of these protocols, though most clients will  ignore
                   them.

       -persistent Normally   emp_hub   exits  after  the  last  client
                   disconnects.  With  this  option  emp_hub  does  not
                   exit,  and  will  wait  for  new clients to connect.
                   emp_hub must be killed by the user  using  the  kill
                   command.

       -help       Brief usage information.

       -debug      Print  lots  of  messages, including everything sent
                   and received by a  client.   Useful  when  debugging
                   either emp_hub , a client, or the server.

BUGS

       Due  to  the  nature of the empire protocol, only one client may
       have input focus at one time.  If a client pauses at  a  context
       sensitive  prompt  from  the  server,  all other clients will be
       unable to send data.
