       emp_hub - Empire multiplexer


       emp_hub [-persistent] [-debug] [-help] [-mirror] host port localport


       emp_hub  allows  multiple  clients  to  simultaneously connect to a single Empire country.
       This allows you to use both a fast and a smart client  simultaneously.   It  also  permits
       multiple corulers to log in at once.

       host        Hostname of the upstream server.

       port        TCP/IP port number the empire server is running on.

       localport   TCP/IP   port  number  the  emp_hub  should  listen  to  for  incoming  client

       -mirror     Copy commands and replies to all clients using new protocols.  Currently  only
                   the  lafe  client is aware of these protocols, though most clients will ignore

       -persistent Normally emp_hub exits after the last client disconnects.   With  this  option
                   emp_hub does not exit, and will wait for new clients to connect.  emp_hub must
                   be killed by the user using the kill command.

       -help       Brief usage information.

       -debug      Print lots of messages, including everything sent and received  by  a  client.
                   Useful when debugging either emp_hub , a client, or the server.


       emp_server(6),          emp_client(6),         emp_hub(6),         pei(6),         eif(6),,


       Due to the nature of the empire protocol, only one client may  have  input  focus  at  one
       time.  If a client pauses at a context sensitive prompt from the server, all other clients
       will be unable to send data.
