SYNOPSIS

gopherd [-dp] [-v] [config_file]

DESCRIPTION

GoFish is a very simple gopher server. It is designed with security and low resource usage in mind. GoFish uses a single process that handles all the connections. This provides low resource usage, good latency (no context switches), and good scalability.

GoFish runs in a chroot(2) environment. This means that GoFish can only serve files from the root directory or below. While GoFish must run at root privilege to be able to use port 70, it drops to a normal user while accessing files.

OPTIONS

-d daemon mode
-p preprocess cache
-v increase verbosity

FILES

/etc/gofish.conf
