       danted - network proxyserver


       danted [-DLVdhnv] [-N number] [-f file] [-p file]


       Dante implements the socks standard and can function as a firewall between networks.

       Dante relays TCP and UDP both from outside the network and in, and from inside and out.

       The options are as follows:

       -D     Dante  will  detach  from  the  controlling terminal and run in the background as a
              system daemon.

       -L     Displays the license Dante comes under.

              Dante will fork of number "main servers" when  starting.   This  can  be  used  for
              servers that are extremely busy, or to provide a (very) poor mans redundancy setup,
              as Dante will try to make these "main servers" as independent  of  each  others  as
              possible.   It  is  unlikely  that  setting this number to anything higher than the
              number of CPUs will improve performance.

       -V     Verifies config file and exits.

              Sets the level of debugging, zero to disable.

       -ffile Dante will read its configuration from file.

       -h     Shows the currently valid options.

       -n     Disables TCP keep-alive messages.  Normally Dante enables TCP  keep-alive  messages
              so  that connections from machines that have crashed or for other reasons no longer
              can be reached time out.  Note that this can take  several  hours.   See  also  the
              "timeout" option in danted.conf(5).

       -pfile Dante will write the pid of the main process to this file.  file.

       -v     Displays Dante version.


       SIGHUP Reload the configuration file.  Will also reopen logfiles.

              Print some information about the servers current state and clients.


       TMPDIR Use  TMPDIR  for  temporary files.  Dante will use this directory for lockfiles and
              memory-mapped files.  It is recommended that TMPDIR be set to a (local)  filesystem
              with  low latency.  The directory should have read/write/execute permission by both
              the privileged and unprivileged userid (as specified in /etc/danted.conf),  but  no
              other non-privileged users.
