SYNOPSIS

alevtd [ options ]

DESCRIPTION

alevtd is http daemon which serves videotext pages as HTML. Tune in some station with a utility like v4lctl or some TV application. Then start it and point your browser to http://localhost:5654/

Pages may be requested either in HTML format (http://localhost:5654/<page>/ or http://localhost:5654/<page>/<subpage>.html) or in ASCII text format (http://localhost:5654/<page>/<subpage>.txt). Subpage "00" can be used for pages without subpages.

OPTIONS

-h print a short help text and the default values for all options.
-v dev set vbi device (default: /dev/vbi0).
-d enable debug output.
-s Write a start/stop notice and serious errors to the syslog. Specify this option twice to get a verbose log (additional log events like dropped connections).
-t sec set network timeout to >sec< seconds.
-c n set the number of allowed parallel connections to >n<. This is a per-thread limit.
-p port
  listen on port >port< for incoming connections. Default 5654.

-i ip bind to IP-address >ip<.
-l log log all requests to the logfile >log< (common log format). Using "-" as filename makes alevtd print the access log to stdout, which is only useful together with the -F switch (see below).

-u user
  set uid to >user< (after binding to the tcp port). This option is allowed for root only.
