NAME

rinputd - Remote Input Server Daemon  

SYNOPSIS

rinputd [ --realm realm ] [ --cert cert ] [ --key key ] [ --port port ] [ --no-broadcast ] [ --verbose | --quiet ]  

DESCRIPTION

rinputd is a server daemon which listens for remote input clients. Clients connect over a secure SSL socket and authenticate with the server through the Cyrus SASL password database /etc/sasldb2. The client may then initialize an input device through the uinput user input event interface. After initialization, the client may send input events such as key presses or mouse movements.  

Options

-r, --realm realm
SASL realm to authenticate against. Defaults to rinput.
-c, --cert cert
SSL certificate file for the secure connection. Defaults to /etc/rinput/rinput.crt.
-k, --key key
SSL private key file for the secure connection. Defaults to /etc/rinput/rinput.key.
-p, --port port
Port to listen for clients on. Set to 0 to listen on any available port. Defaults to 8771.
-n, --no-broadcast
Don't broadcast rinputd service on local network through multicast DNS. This option is only available in Mac OS X or if compiled with Avahi support.
-q, --quiet
Limit output to rinputd internal errors.
-v, --verbose
Print out debugging information. Not useful for general purposes.
-f, --foreground
Do not fork to become a daemon, remain in the foreground.
