NAME

updatesrv - update server files

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

updatesrv [ -d debug_level ] [ -l number_of_lwps ] [ -p prefix ] [ -s ] [ -port listen_port ]

DESCRIPTION

The updatesrv command is a read-only server that responds to requests for files by name. The operands that it accepts are:

-d debug_level

This is used to increase the level of messages written to the log file.

-l number_of_lwps

This operand is used to specify how many lwps will be used to answer file requests. Default: 2.

-p prefix

This name, prefixed to all file requests, is used to limit the files that can be requested.

-port listen_port

This is the UDP port on which we should be listening. If not specified updatesrv will use a random port.

EXAMPLES

The command updatesrv -s -p / would invoke the updatesrv process and cause the files to be served relative to / on the server machine.

The command updatesrv -s -p /vice/bin would cause the files to be served relative to /vice/bin on the server machine.

DIAGNOSTICS

The UpdateLog file will contain useful information. Issuing a kill -TSTP signal to a running updatesrv will increase the level of debugging messages. The debugging messages can be turned off by issuing a kill -HUP signal. This will also cause the log file to no longer be written.

FILES

UpdateLog

This log of the messages from updatesrv is kept in the directory specified by the -p operand on the invocation. This log file is only written when debugging is enabled.

pid

This file contains the pid of the updatesrv process. It is kept in the directory specified on the -p operand on invocation of the command.

BUGS

It does not yet use any password authentication to stop others from using it to fetch files from servers.
