NAME

ctrlproxy - a modular IRC proxy with multi-server support

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

ctrlproxy [-d file] [-l file] [-D] [--init] [-r file] [-v]

DESCRIPTION

ctrlproxy is a modular IRC proxy. It connects to a number of IRC servers and then passes data it receives on to the modules that have been loaded into it. Current modules are client_simple (for proxy support) and log (for irssi-style log file generation).

By default, ctrlproxy listens for client connections on port 6668 and any ports after that one, depending on the number of servers it is connected to.

OPTIONS

ctrlproxy recognizes the following command-line options

-i, --inetd-client=NETWORK

Add incoming client on stdin/stdout, connected to the specified network. This can be used for inetd-like communication and testing.

-d, --debugfile=FILE

Dump IRC traffic to specified file. Only useful for debugging purposes.

-D, --daemon

Go to the background after the program has been started (daemon mode).

-c, --config-dir=DIR

Read configuration files from the specified directory DIR instead of from .ctrlproxy in the users' homedirectory.

--init

Create a new configuration file.

-v, --version

Show copyright and version information

-?, --help

Show help message with short argument information

-l, --log=FILE

Log ctrlproxy messages to specified file.

--usage

Display brief usage message

SIGNALS

When ctrlproxy receives a USR1 signal, it will save its current state.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

CTRLPROXY_MODULESDIR

Override directory that will be searched for plugins.
