NAME

       miredo-server - Teredo server for Unix

SYNOPSIS

       miredo-server [-c config_file] [-f] [-u user] [server_name]

DESCRIPTON

       Miredo-server  is  an Unix daemon program which implements a Teredo server as specified by
       the "Teredo: Tunneling IPv6 over UDP through NATs" Internet proposed standard (RFC 4380).

       A Teredo server is required for Teredo clients to setup their  IPv6  connectivity  through
       Teredo. A Teredo server must have two global static subsequent IPv4 addresses. It receives
       packets from Teredo clients and Teredo relays on UDP port 3544.

OPTIONS

       -c config_file or --config config_file
              Specify an  alternate  configuration  file  for  Miredo  instead  of  the  default,
              /etc/miredo/miredo-server.conf.

       -f or --foreground
              Do not detach from the console. Run the program in the foreground.

       -h or --help
              Display some help and exit.

       -u username or --user username
              Override the user that the program will run as. By default, it runs as nobody.

       -V or --version
              Display program version and license and exit.

SECURITY

       miredo-server  requires  root  privileges to create open a raw IPv6 socket that is used to
       emit ICMPv6 Echo Request packets. Once its initialization is  complete,  it  will  setgid,
       chroot  into  an  empty directory and ultimately setuid (see option -u), so as to decrease
       the system's exposure to potential security issues.

SIGNALS

       SIGHUP Force a reload of the daemon.

       SIGINT, SIGTERM Shutdown the daemon.

       SIGUSR1, SIGUSR2 Do nothing, might be used in future versions.

FILES

       /etc/miredo/miredo-server.conf
              The default configuration file.

       /var/run/miredo-server.pid
              The process-id file.
