SYNOPSIS

rwhoisd [-c ConfFile] [-rsdiVvq]

DESCRIPTION

RWhoisd serves data using the RWhois protocol. The rwhoisd server will serve formatted records based on a query, send referral and see-also information, and change the server environment based on directives. The server is typically run as a standalone server, although it can be run from inetd(1).

OPTIONS

Options given on the command line override equivalent options given in the rwhoisd configuration files.
-c The full path of the main rwhoisd configuration file. Default is "rwhoisd.conf" in the current working directory.
-r Become a root rwhois server. No referrals to a higher level of the tree are given if the server cannot find an answer to the query.
-s Attempt a chroot(2) upon startup.
-d Start up in "daemon mode".
-i Start up in "inetd mode".
-v Verbose. Logging will occur at the "info" level. See syslog.conf(4) for descriptions of the logging levels
-V Very Verbose. Logging will occur at the "debug" level.
-q Quiet Mode. Disable most logging. Logging will occur at the "alert" level.
