NAME

       tinyproxy - A light-weight HTTP proxy daemon

SYNOPSIS

       tinyproxy [-vldch]

DESCRIPTION

       tinyproxy is a light-weight HTTP proxy daemon designed to consume a minimum amount of
       system resources. It listens on a given TCP port and handles HTTP proxy requests. Designed
       from the ground up to be fast and yet small, it is an ideal solution for use cases such as
       embedded deployments where a full featured HTTP proxy is required, but the system
       resources for a larger proxy are unavailable.

OPTIONS

       tinyproxy accepts the following options:

       -c <config-file>
           Use an alternate configuration file.

       -d
           Don’t daemonize and stay in the foreground. Useful for debugging purposes.

       -h
           Display a short help screen of command line arguments and exit.

       -l
           Display the licensing agreement.

       -v
           Display version information and exit.

SIGNALS

       In addition to command-line options, there are also several signals that can be sent to
       tinyproxy while it is running to generate debugging information and to force certain
       events.

       SIGHUP
           Force Tinyproxy to do a garbage collection on the current connections linked list.
           This is usually done automatically after a certain number of connections have been
           handled.

TEMPLATE FILES

       There are two occasions when Tinyproxy delivers HTML pages to the client on it’s own
       right:

        1. When an error occurred, a corresponding error page is returned.

        2. When a request for the stathost is made, a page summarizing the connection statistics
           is returned. (See STATHOST below.)

       The layout of both error pages and the statistics page can be controlled via configurable
       HTML template files that are plain HTML files that additionally understand a few template
       variables.

TEMPLATE VARIABLES

       There are several standard HTML variables that are available in every template file:

       request
           The full HTTP request line.

       cause
           The abbreviated cause of the error condition.

       clientip
           The IP address of the client making the request.

       clienthost
           The hostname of the client making the request.

       version
           The version of Tinyproxy.

       package
           The package name. Presently, resolves to tinyproxy.

       date
           The current date/time in HTTP format.

       In addition, almost all templates support:

       detail
           A detailed, plain English explanation of the error and possible causes.

       When Tinyproxy finds a variable name enclosed in braces, e.g. "{request}", then this is
       replaced by the value of the corresponding variable before delivery of the page.

STATHOST

       Tinyproxy returns a HTML page with connection statistics when it receives a HTTP request
       for a certain host — the stathost. The stathost name defaults to tinyproxy.stats and can
       be changed at runtime to any name or IP address with the configuration variable StatHost.

       The stat file template can be changed at runtime through the configuration variable
       StatFile.

FILES

       /etc/tinyproxy/tinyproxy.conf, /var/run/tinyproxy/tinyproxy.pid,
       /var/log/tinyproxy/tinyproxy.log
