camserv-relay - program to start a camserv relay host
<port> <camserv IP> <camservport>
This manual page documents briefly the
command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution
because the original program does not have a manual page.
camserv-relay is a program which relays a camserv video stream
for load balancing purposes. This connects as a client to a camserv
streaming video server, and then acts as a camserv server, streaming
the same data to clients. Useful when the computer doing the streaming
has insufficient CPU, I/O, or network bandwidth to stream to the required
number of clients. A tree of camserv relays can handle massive loads.
A summary of options is included below.
The port which will serve the camserv relay on the localhost.
The IP address of the camserv server to connect to.
The port at which the camserv server is running. The camserv-relay will connect to this port at the IP address given by <camserv IP>.
The programs are documented fully by the information provided in
/usr/share/doc/camserv, and the information provided by the upstream
author at http://cserv.sourceforge.net
