       dhtnode - a simple OpenDHT command line node runner.


       dhtnode [-h]

       dhtnode   [-v   [-l   logfile]]   [-i]   [-d]   [-n   network_id]   [-p   local_port]  [-b


       This program runs a simple OpenDHT node in an interactive way. If you rather want  to  run
       the  node  in daemon mode, option '-d' is provided. When running in the interactive shell,
       you benefit from the readline capabilities for  writing  your  commands  such  as  command
       history. Here are the available commands in the interactive shell:

           h, help    Print this help message.
           q, quit    Quit the program.
           log        Start/stop printing DHT logs.

           Node information:
           ll         Print basic information and stats about the current node.
           ls         Print basic information about current searches.
           ld         Print basic information about currenty stored values on this node.
           lr         Print the full current routing table of this node

           Operations on the DHT:
           b ip:port             Ping potential node at given IP address/port.
           g [key]               Get values at [key].
           l [key]               Listen for value changes at [key].
           p [key] [str]         Put string value at [key].
           s [key] [str]         Put string value at [key], signed with our generated
                                 private key.
           e [key] [dest] [str]  Put string value at [key], encrypted for [dest] with
                                 its public key (if found).


       -h     Prints some help.

       -v     Enable the verbose mode (log to stdout by default)

       -l log_file
              Write log to file instead of stdout

       -i     Generate cryptographic identity for the node.

       -d     Run the program in daemon mode (will fork in the background).

       -n network_id
              Specify  the network id. This let you connect to distinct networks and prevents the
              merge of two different networks (available since OpenDHT v0.6.1).

       -p local_port
              Use port local_port for the program to bind to.

       -b bootstrap_host[:port]
              The program needs to be given a node to connect to the network. You use this option
              to provide the ip address of that node.
