        afclient.conf - Configuration File for afclient


        Afclient  supports  several mechanisms to supply configuration and run-
        time parameters: command line  options,  afclient.conf  and  hard-coded
        defaults.  When  the same information is supplied in more than one way,
        the highest precedence mechanism is used. When  configuration  file  is
        used  (option:  -f FILE) command line options like --reverseudp, --udp‐
        mode, --remoteadmin, --load, --Load and  --pass  are  ignored.  Options
        from configuration file are taken before values from command line (with
        the exception of --keyfile,  --storefile,  --dateformat,  --ignorepkeys
        and  the options connected with http proxy and auto-reconnect support).
        When something is not declared, hard-coded values are used.


        Afclient uses configuration file, which name is supplied by the -f FILE
        option. The afclient.conf file is the set of command-line like options,
        which can be written in any order.


        servername NAME
          name of the host, where afserver is running
        manageport PORT
          manage port number - server must be listening on it (default: 50126)
        hostname NAME
          the name of this host/remote host -  the  final  destination  of  the
        packets (default: the name returned by hostname function)
        portnum PORT
          the port we are forwarding connection to
        localname NAME
          local  machine name for connection with afserver (used to bind socket
        to different interfaces)
        localport NAME
          local port name for connection with afserver (used to bind socket  to
        different addressees)
        localdesname NAME
          local machine name for connections with destination application (used
        to bind socket to different interfaces)
        id STRING
          sends the id string to afserver
        pass PASSWORD
          set the password used for client identification  (default:  no  pass‐
          ignore invalid server’s public keys
        keyfile FILE
          the name of the file with RSA key (default: client.rsa)
        storefile FILE
          the name of the file with stored public keys (default: known_hosts)
        dateformat FORMAT
          format  of  the date printed in logs (see ’man strftime’ for details)
        (default: %d.%m.%Y %H:%M:%S). Format string is  trimmed.  In  order  to
        include white characters into format string, use dots to mark beginning
        and end of the text. If the  dot  is  first  or  last  character,  it’s
        removed. Only one character from the beginning and one from the end can
        be removed.
        keep-alive N
          send keepalive packets every N seconds (default: not  send  keepalive
          enable  auto-reconnection  when  afserver  is  not reachable on start
        (default: disabled)
          enable auto-reconnection after normal afserver  quit  (default:  dis‐
          disable  auto-reconnection  after  premature  afserver quit (default:
        ar-tries N
          try N times to reconnect (default: unlimited)
        ar-delay N
          wait N seconds between reconnect tries (default: 5)
          udp mode - client will use udp protocol to communicate with the host‐
          reverse  udp  forwarding.  Udp  packets  will be forwarded from host‐
        name:portnum to the server name:manageport
          remote administration mode. (using ’-p PORT’ will force  afclient  to
        use port rather than stdin-stdout)
        log LOGCMD
          log choosen information to file/socket
          use ipv4 only
          use ipv6 only
        load FILE
          load a module for user’s packets filtering
        Load FILE
          load a module for service’s packets filtering
          use https proxy instead of http proxy
        proxyname NAME
          the name of the machine with proxy server
        proxyport PORT
          the port used by proxy server (default: 8080)
        pa-cred U:P
          the user (U) and password (P) used in proxy authorization
