NAME

danted - network proxyserver  

SYNOPSIS

danted [-DLVdhnv] [-N number] [-f file]  

DESCRIPTION

Dante 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.
 

ENVIRONMENT

TMPDIR
Use TMPDIR for temporary files. Since Dante uses lockfiles it is recommended that TMPDIR be set to a (local) filesystem with low latency.
 

FILES

/etc/danted.conf
Dante server configuration file.
