SYNOPSIS

spadesd -V
spadesd [-l] [-p main-port] [-t taunt-port]

DESCRIPTION

NetSpades is a client/server application so in order to play across the network, spadesd must be running somewhere. This can be your local computer or a remote computer. Only one server needs to be running for you to play, and a single server can handle several games (5 by default).

Note that spadesd does not need to be running to play in off-line mode.

spadesd requires the use of two TCP ports. By default, ports 7626 and 7627 are used, but these may be overridden on the command line.

spadesd was designed to run continuously. If you are done playing (and are sure that no one else is playing!), you may stop the server with Ctrl-C. spadesd does not need to run as root.

OPTIONS

-V Print version and exit.
-l Log all client-server interactions to stdout.
-p main-port
  main-port is the port number on which spadesd will wait for clients. If not specified, the default value of 7626 will be used.
-t taunt-port
  taunt-port is the port number on which spadesd will wait for clients to register with thte TauntServer(tm). If this value is not specified, the default value of 7626 will be used.

BUGS

None known.
