iodine-client-start - start an iodine IPv4-over-DNS tunnel
'iodine-client-start' starts an iodine IP-over-DNS tunnel. -h, --help Print help and exit -v, --version Print version info and exit Invoking the program without options attempts to set up and configure an iodine IP-over-DNS tunnel using the configuration in the file /etc/default/iodine-client or by querying the user. It tries to figure out the right way to set things up by observing the network, and if all else fails by guessing. QUICK CONFIGURATION Put two lines in the file /etc/default/iodine-client subdomain=your.tunnel.sub.domain passwd=password_for_that_tunnel or invoke the script with those environment variables set: env subdomain=xxx passwd=xxx iodine-client-start If these are not set, the script will query the user for them. DETAILS The configuration file consists of lines which are either comments starting with '#', or settings of the form VAR="val". Valid VARs are: subdomain Sample value: your.tunnel.sub.domain (no default, must be set) passwd Sample value: password_for_that_tunnel (no default, must be set) testhost Hostname to ping when testing if network is working (default: slashdot.org) bounce_localnet Take the local network down and then up again before starting tunnel (default: false) test_ping_localnet Test if the local network is working by pinging the gateway (default: true) test_ping_tunnel Test if the iodine tunnel is working after it has been set up by pinging the host at the other end (default: true) test_ping_final Test if the tunnel is working after everything is ostensibly set up by trying to ping an external host (default: true) default_router IP address of router on the local network---should be found automatically, set this if that fails and the program guesses wrong. interface Interface to use (e.g., eth1, eth0, etc) for connection to DNS server used for the iodine tunnel---should be found automatically, set this if that fails and the program guesses wrong. mtu Set if tunnel MTU needs to be manually changed (lowered). Should not be necessary anymore, as recent versions of iodine negotiate an appropriate MTU during tunnel setup. But if that negotiation does not happen, or if you are using an older version of iodine, the default tunnel MTU is 1024, and if the local DNS server restricts to 512 byte packets you might need to use an MTU of 220. skip_raw_udp_mode Set "-r" option in iodine command line. With this option, iodine does not try to establish a direct UDP socket to the iodine server on port 53. (default: true). continue_on_error Set if the script should continue even if a command fails. Use to test script when running as non-root. Defaults to false if running as root, true otherwise.
