NAME

       supernode - n2n supernode daemon

SYNOPSIS

       supernode -l <port> [-v]

DESCRIPTION

       N2N  is  a  peer-to-peer  VPN  system. Supernode is a node introduction
       registry, broadcast conduit and packet relay node for the  n2n  system.
       On  startup  supernode  begins  listening on the specified UDP port for
       node registrations, and other  packets  to  route.  The  supernode  can
       service  any  number  of  communities  and  routes packets only between
       members of  the  same  community.  The  supernode  does  not  hold  the
       community encryption key and so cannot snoop or inject packets into the
       community.

       Supernode can service a number of n2n communities concurrently. Traffic
       does not cross between communities.

       All logging goes to stdout.

OPTIONS

       -l <port>
              listen on the given UDP port

       -v     use verbose logging

EXAMPLES

       supernode -l 7654 -v
              Start supernode listening on UDP port 7654 with verbose output.

RESTART

       When  suprenode  restarts  it  loses  all registration information from
       associated edge nodes. It can take up to  five  minutes  for  the  edge
       nodes to re-register and normal traffic flow to resume.

EXIT STATUS

       supernode is a daemon and any exit is an error
