NAMEafclient.conf - Configuration File for afclient
INTRODUCTIONAfclient supports several mechanisms to supply configuration and run- time parameters: command line options, afclient.conf and hard-coded defaults. When the same information is supplied in more than one way, the highest precedence mechanism is used. When configuration file is used (option: -f FILE) command line options like --reverseudp, --udpmode, --remoteadmin, --load, --Load and --pass are ignored. Options from configuration file are taken before values from command line (with the exception of --keyfile, --storefile, --dateformat, --ignorepkeys and the options connected with http proxy and auto- reconnect support). When something is not declared, hard-coded values are used.
DESCRIPTIONAfclient uses configuration file, which name is supplied by the -f FILE option. The afclient.conf file is the set of command-line like options, which can be written in any order.
OPTIONSservername NAME name of the host, where afserver is running manageport PORT manage port number - server must be listening on it (default: 50126) hostname NAME the name of this host/remote host - the final destination of the packets (default: the name returned by hostname function) portnum PORT the port we are forwarding connection to localname NAME local machine name for connection with afserver (used to bind socket to different interfaces) localport NAME local port name for connection with afserver (used to bind socket to different addressees) localdesname NAME local machine name for connections with destination application (used to bind socket to different interfaces) id STRING sends the id string to afserver pass PASSWORD set the password used for client identification (default: no password) ignorepkeys ignore invalid server's public keys keyfile FILE the name of the file with RSA key (default: client.rsa) cerfile FILE the name of the file with certificate (default: no certificate used) storefile FILE the name of the file with stored public keys (default: known_hosts) dateformat FORMAT format of the date printed in logs (see 'man strftime' for details) (default: %d.%m.%Y %H:%M:%S). Format string is trimmed. In order to include white characters into format string, use dots to mark beginning and end of the text. If the dot is first or last character, it's removed. Only one character from the beginning and one from the end can be removed. keep-alive N send keepalive packets every N seconds (default: not send keepalive packets) ar-start enable auto-reconnection when afserver is not reachable on start (default: disabled) ar-quit enable auto-reconnection after normal afserver quit (default: disabled) noar disable auto-reconnection after premature afserver quit (default: enabled) ar-tries N try N times to reconnect (default: unlimited) ar-delay N wait N seconds between reconnect tries (default: 5) udpmode udp mode - client will use udp protocol to communicate with the hostname:portnum reverseudp reverse udp forwarding. Udp packets will be forwarded from hostname:portnum to the server name:manageport remoteadmin remote administration mode. (using '-p PORT' will force afclient to use port rather than stdin-stdout) log LOGCMD log choosen information to file/socket ipv4 use ipv4 only ipv6 use ipv6 only load FILE load a module for user's packets filtering Load FILE load a module for service's packets filtering use-https use https proxy instead of http proxy proxyname NAME the name of the machine with proxy server proxyport PORT the port used by proxy server (default: 8080) pa-cred U:P the user (U) and password (P) used in proxy authorization pa-t-basic the Basic type of proxy authorization (default)
