NAME

       iauth - The Internet Relay Chat Authentication Program

SYNOPSIS

       iauth  [ -v | -c configfile ]

DESCRIPTION

       iauth  is  a  slave  process  used  by  the ircd program to perform the
       authentication of incoming TCP connections.  The  ircd  program  starts
       iauth upon startup.

       iauth  will  close  and reopen the log file whenever it receives a user
       signal 2, SIGUSR2.  This is useful to rotate the log file.

OPTIONS

       -c filename
              When this flag is given, the program will read the configuration
              file  specify  and  validate  it.   This  is useful to check for
              errors in the setup.

       -v     This option dumps information about the version.

EXAMPLE

              millennium% iauth -c iauth.conf
              iauth 2.10

              Reading "iauth.conf"
