NAME

       latd - LAT daemon

SYNOPSIS

       latd [options]
       Options:
       [-dvVht] [-i interface] [-g greeting] [-s service] [-c circuit-timer] [-r rating]

DESCRIPTION

       latd is a daemon that serves incoming and outgoing LAT (Local Area Transport) requests.
       The parameters for LATD are just defaults, they can all be changed using latcp(8).

       latd should not be started directly but should be invoked using the command latcp -s.  Any
       arguments for latd can be added to the latcp -s command  line  and  many  can  be  set  in
       /etc/latd.conf(5).

   OPTIONS
       -i     Set  the  interface to be used for LAT communication. If this is not specified then
              all ethernet interfaces will be used. This option can be specified  multiple  times
              to enable several interfaces. eg:
              -i  eth0  -i  eth2  Note,  only Linux can use more than one ethernet interface at a
              time. *BSD versions will use the first available  ethernet  adaptor  unless  it  is
              overridden by -i.

       -g     Sets the greeting for this node.

       -s     Set the default service name for this node. The default is the node name.

       -c     Sets the circuit timer. The default is 80 (ms);

       -r     Sets  the  rating  for  the  default  service. If the -t switch is not present this
              rating will be the maximum rating for the service.  The load average of the machine
              will  be  used  to  recalculate the rating each time the servuce is announced. This
              allows terminal servers to do load balancing.

       -t     Makes the rating static. It will not change as the system load changes.

       -d     Don't fork and run the background. Use this for debugging.

       -v     Verbose. The more of these there are the more verbose latd will be. Don't use  more
              than one for normal operation because it will seriously impair performance.

       -h -?  Displays help for using the command.

       -V     Show the version of latd.
