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.
