SYNOPSIS


jumpgate [-hsvi] [-b local_host] [-l local_port] [-r remote_port] [-a remote_host] [-f filename] [-c number_of_connections] [-L microseconds]

DESCRIPTION

jumpgate is a TCP connection forwarder that provides many enhancements and improvements over the existing programs that do the same thing.

jumpgate provides an interactive mode that queries the connected party for the forwarding information it needs. Also, there is the option to log the entire forwarded session in a file for later inspection. Furthermore, it can log information about the forwarded session via the syslog(3) facility.

OPTIONS

-h Output a help message that describes in brief the usage of each option.
-s Enable logging of the forwarding information via syslog(3).
-v Display version number and exit.
-i Enable interactive mode. When interactive mode is enabled, only the local port argument is obligatory, since the connected party is queried about the rest needed forwarding information.
-b local_host Specify the local IP to bind.
-l local_port Specify the local port to listen on. A port number or a service name can be specified.
-r remote_port Specify the remote port to forward the connection to. A port number or a service name can be specified.
-a remote_host Specify the remote host or IP address to forward the connection to.
-f filename Specify the filename to log the entire forwarded session. In interactive mode it logs every forwarded connection.
-c number_of_connections Specify the maximum length of the queue of pending connections.
-L microseconds Specify the latency in the forwarded connection in microseconds. A microsecond is 0.000001 seconds.
jumpgate is thoroughly tested on OpenBSD, but should compile and run without problems on any Unix-like system with no or trivial modifications. For a list of systems that jumpgate is known to run on see the README file. If you furtherly improve it, please send me the diffs.

EXAMPLES

For example, to forward all the onnections coming to the local machine on port 4000 to bsd.gr port 21, and log the connected party via syslog(3) one should invoke jumpgate like this:

jumpgate -s -l 4000 -r 21 -a bsd.gr

In order to wait for connections on port 4000 on the local machine, and then ask the connected party where to forward the connection, while logging the entire forwarding session to the jumpgate.log file you should do:

jumpgate -i -l 4000 -f jumpgate.log

BUGS

jumpgate’s interactive mode is still considered to be in beta testing phase. Also, there is no UDP support yet.
