xfindproxy - locate proxy services
xfindproxy -manager managerAddr -name
serviceName -server serverAddr
] [-options opts
is a program used to locate available proxy services. It
utilizes the Proxy Management Protocol to communicate with a proxy manager.
The proxy manager keeps track of all available proxy services, starts new
proxies when necessary, and makes sure that proxies are shared whenever
argument is required, and it specifies the network address
of the proxy manager. The format of the address is a standard ICE network id
(for example, "tcp/blah.x.org:6500").
argument is required, and it specifies the name of the desired
proxy service (for example, "LBX"). The name is case insensitive.
argument is also required, and it specifies the address of
the target server. The format of the address is specific to the proxy service
specified with the -name argument. For example, for a proxy service of
"LBX", the address would be an X display address (e.g,
argument is optional. If specified, xfindproxy will read 2
lines from standard input. The first line is an authorization/authentication
name. The second line is the authorization/authentication data in hex format
(the same format used by xauth). xfindproxy will pass this auth data to the
proxy, and in most cases, will be used by the proxy to authorize/authenticate
itself to the target server.
argument is optional. If xfindproxy starts a new proxy service,
it will pass the host specified. The proxy may choose to restrict all
connections to this host. In the event that xfindproxy locates an already
existing proxy, the host will be passed, but the semantics of how the proxy
uses this host are undefined.
argument is optional. If xfindproxy starts a new proxy
service, it will pass any options specified. The semantics of the options are
specific to each proxy server and are not defined here. In the event that
xfindproxy locates an already existing proxy, the options will be passed, but
the semantics of how the proxy uses these options are undefined.
argument prints the program version and exits.
If xfindproxy is successful in obtaining a proxy address, it will print it to
stdout. The format of the proxy address is specific to the proxy service being
used. For example, for a proxy service of "LBX", the proxy address
would be the X display address of the proxy (e.g, "blah.x.org:63").
If xfindproxy is unsuccessful in obtaining a proxy address, it will print an
error to stderr.
