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


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.
Print available options.
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).
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:  RO /dev/acd0 RW /tmp/test.img 
hostname WO /tmp/image


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.


Export CD-ROM device and a file:

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