NAME

fspd, in.fspd − File Service Protocol (FSP) server

SYNOPSIS

fspd [-f configfile] [-p port] [-i] [-v|-V] [-t timeout] [-X] [-d directory] [-F ] [-T temporary directory] [-l logfile]

DESCRIPTION

fspd is the server for an anonymous-ftp style archive called FSP. The main features of this service are: connection-less model, communication robustness, server resource protection, inter-client protection, and user friendly interface. Please read the INFO file bundled with the FSP source for more information.

OPTIONS

-f

May be used to specify an alternate configuration file.

-i

Use when fspd is running from inetd.

-p port

May be used to specify an alternative port.

-d directory

May be used to specify an alternative home directory.

-v | -V

Show server version.

-X

Turn on debuging.

-t timeout

Set server inactivity shutdown timeout for running in inetd mode. Default is 120 seconds. When -d is used, this timeout works in normal mode also (usefull for debuging of memory leaks).

-F

Run fspd in foreground, do not daemonize.

-T directory

Set server temporary directory used for uploading. This directory can be outside FSP home directory since it is not directly accessible by clients. Using directory inside FSP home is not a security risk.

-l logfile

Write log output to file.
