NAMEdanted - network proxyserver
SYNOPSISdanted [-DLVdhnv] [-N number] [-f file]
DESCRIPTIONDante 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. -Nnumber Dante will fork of number copies of itself when starting. Can be used for very busy servers. -V Verifies config file and exits. -d Enables debugging. -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. -v Displays Dante version.
ENVIRONMENTTMPDIR Use TMPDIR for temporary files. Since Dante uses lockfiles it is recommended that TMPDIR be set to a (local) filesystem with low latency.
