portforward options

-h, --host <host>
Proxy connections to <host>
-d, --dest_port <port>
Proxy connections to <port> on remote host.
-p, --port <port>
Listen locally on <port>

 

web options

-u, --user
Makes a server with ~/public_html and ~/.twistd-web-pb support for users.
--personal
Instead of generating a webserver, generate a ResourcePublisher which listens on ~/.twistd-web-pb
--path <path>
<path> is either a specific file or a directory to be set as the root of the web server. Use this if you have a directory full of HTML, cgi, php3, epy, or rpy files or any other files that you want to be served up raw.
-p, --port <port>
<port> is a number representing which port you want to start the server on.
-m, --mime_type <mimetype>
<mimetype> is the default MIME type to use for files in a --path web server when none can be determined for a particular extension. The default is 'text/html'.
--allow_ignore_ext
Specify whether or not a request for 'foo' should return 'foo.ext'. Default is off.
--ignore-ext .<extension>
Specify that a request for 'foo' should return 'foo.<extension>'.
-t, --telnet <port>
Run a telnet server on <port>, for additional configuration later.
-i, --index <name>

--processor <ext>=<class name>
Adds a processor to those file names. (Only usable if after --path)
--resource-script <script name>
Sets the root as a resource script. This script will be re-evaluated on every request.

This creates a web.tap file that can be used by twistd. If you specify no arguments, it will be a demo webserver that has the Test class from twisted.web.test in it.

<port> is a number representing which port you want to start the server on.
