 NAME
      xfindproxy - locate proxy services

 SYNOPSIS
      xfindproxy -manager managerAddr -name serviceName -server serverAddr
      [-auth] [-host hostAddr] [-options opts]

 DESCRIPTION
      xfindproxy 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 possible.

      The -manager 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").

      The -name argument is required, and it specifies the name of the
      desired proxy service (for example, "LBX").  The name is case
      insensitive.

      The -server 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,
      "blah.x.org:0").

      The -auth argument is optional.  If specified, xfindproxy will read
      two 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.

      The -host 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.

      The -options 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.

      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.
