cfservd: cfengine server daemon


cfservd - cfengine server daemon


/usr/local/sbin/cfservd [options]


cfengine is a language based system specifically designed for testing and configuring unix-like systems attached to a TCP/IP network. Cfservd is a file server and protective wrapper for starting cfengine remotely. It performs access control based on RSA authentication and IP address.

The daemon looks for a configuration file cfservd.conf by default. Cfservd gives little information when it fails to serve. This is by design. More information can be obtained using the debug option -d2 on both client and server ends.

-d (--debug)
Enable debugging output. (parsing -d1,run, -d2, lite -d3)
-h (--help)
