NAME

SYNOPSIS
     ggated [-h] [-n] [-v] [-a address] [-p port] [-R rcvbuf] [-S sndbuf]
            [exports file]

DESCRIPTION
     The ggated utility is a network server for GEOM Gate class.  It runs on a
     server machine to service GEOM Gate requests from workers placed on a
     client machine.  Keep in mind, that connection between ggatec(8) and
     ggated is not encrypted.

     Available options:

     -a address    Specifies an IP address to bind to.

     -h            Print available options.

     -n            Do not use TCP_NODELAY option on TCP sockets.

     -p port       Port on which ggated listens for connection.  Default is
                   3080.

     -R rcvbuf     Size of receive buffer to use.  Default is 131072 (128kB).

     -S sndbuf     Size of send buffer to use.  Default is 131072 (128kB).

     -v            Do not fork, run in foreground and print debug informations
                   on standard output.

     exports file  An alternate location for the exports file.

     The format of an exports file is as follows:

           1.2.3.4         RO      /dev/acd0
           1.2.3.0/24      RW      /tmp/test.img
           hostname        WO      /tmp/image

EXAMPLES
     Export CD-ROM device and a file:

           # echo "1.2.3.0/24 RO /dev/acd0" > /etc/gg.exports
           # echo "client RW /image" >> /etc/gg.exports
           # ggated

DIAGNOSTICS
     Exit status is 0 on success, or 1 if the command fails.  To get details
     about the failure, ggated should be called with the -v option.
