       alevtd - webserver for videotext pages


       alevtd [ options ]


       alevtd  is  http daemon which serves videotext pages as HTML.  Tune in some station with a
       utility like v4lctl or some TV application.  Then start  it  and  point  your  browser  to

       Pages   may   be   requested  either  in  HTML  format  (http://localhost:5654/<page>/  or
       http://localhost:5654/<page>/<subpage>.html)     or     in     ASCII      text      format
       (http://localhost:5654/<page>/<subpage>.txt).   Subpage "00" can be used for pages without


       -h     print a short help text and the default values for all options.

       -v dev set vbi device (default: /dev/vbi0).

       -d     enable debug output.

       -s     Write a start/stop notice and serious errors to the syslog.   Specify  this  option
              twice to get a verbose log (additional log events like dropped connections).

       -t sec set network timeout to >sec< seconds.

       -c n   set the number of allowed parallel connections to >n<.  This is a per-thread limit.

       -p port
              listen on port >port< for incoming connections.  Default 5654.

       -n hostname
              set the hostname which the server should use (required for redirects).

       -i ip  bind to IP-address >ip<.

       -l log log  all  requests to the logfile >log< (common log format).  Using "-" as filename
              makes alevtd print the access log to stdout, which is only useful together with the
              -F switch (see below).

       -L log same  as  above,  but  additional flush every line.  Useful if you want monitor the
              logfile with tail -f.

       -u user
              set uid to >user< (after binding to the tcp port).  This option is allowed for root

       -g group
              set  gid  to  >group<  (after binding to the tcp port).  This option is allowed for
              root only.

       -F     don't run as daemon.  alevtd  will  not  fork  into  background,  not  detach  from
              terminal and report errors to stderr.

       -r     poll tv frequency, clear vtx page cache if a frequency change was detected.
