Projects / ipsvd


ipsvd is a set of Internet protocol service daemons for TCP/IP (optionally SSLv3) and UDP/IP. A daemon waits for incoming connections on a socket; for new connections, it conditionally runs an arbitrary program to handle the connection. The daemons can be told to read and follow pre-defined instructions on how to handle incoming connections; based on the client's IP address or hostname, they can run different programs, set a different environment, deny a connection, or set a per host concurrency limit. ipsvd can be used to run services usually run by inetd or tcpserver. Normally the daemons are run by a supervisor process, such as runsv from the runit package.

        Release Notes: This version introduces a new sslsvd SSLv3 TCP/IP service daemon. sslsvd integrates the sslio program into tcpsvd, so that initializing the SSL session and reading the SSL key and certificate no longer need to be done for each incoming connection, but only once on startup of the service daemon.

            Release Notes: The sslio program supports server mode as well as client mode on Mac OS X, not only on Linux; see the installation instructions on how to enable it in the build and testing process. A check for sslio has been added to complete the package's self-tests.
