sniproxy: transparent session based TLS and HTTP proxy


SNIProxy - transparent session based TLS and HTTP proxy


sniproxy [ -c config ] [ -f ] [ -n file-descriptor-limit ] [ -V ]


Proxies incoming HTTP and TLS connections based on the hostname contained in the initial request of the TCP session. This enables HTTPS name-based virtual hosting to separate backend servers without installing the private key on the proxy machine.


-c config
Specify configuration file to use. The default is /etc/sniproxy.conf.

Run in foreground. Do not daemonize or drop privileges.

-n file-descriptor-limit
Specify the maximum file descriptor resource limit. SNIProxy will attempt to set the maximum file descriptor limit to the value specified.

Print the version of SNIProxy and exit.
