        afserver.conf - Configuration File for afserver


        Afserver  supports  several mechanisms to supply configuration and run-
        time parameters: command line  options,  afserver.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 --hostname, --listen‐
        port, --manageport and --pass are ignored. Options  from  configuration
        file  are  taken before values from command line (with the exception of
        --cerfile,  --keyfile  and  --dateformat  ).  When  something  is   not
        declared, hard-coded values are used.


        Afserver uses configuration file, which name is supplied by the -f FILE
        option. The afserver.conf file is composed of two sections  which  have
        to be in fixed order. In first section global values like cerfile, key‐
        file and logging options are set. The second section starts with  first
        realm  command  and  includes options describing specific realms. There
        may be several realm commands.
        cerfile FILE
          the name of the file with certificate (default: cacert.pem)
        keyfile FILE
          the name of the file with RSA key (default: server.rsa)
        log LOGCMD
          log choosen information to file/socket
        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.
        realm [NAME]
          starts  configuration  of  the  next  realm. Name of the realm can be
        specified using this option.
        hostname NAME
          used when creating listening sockets (default: ’’)
        listenport PORT
          listening port number - users connect to it (required at least one)
        manageport PORT
          manage port number - afclient connects to it (required at least one)
        pass PASSWORD
          password used for client identification (default: no password)
        users N
          the amount of users allowed to use this server (default: 5)
        timeout N
          the timeout value for the client’s connection (default: 5)
        --maxidle N
          the maximum idle time for the client’s connection (default: disabled)
        clients N
          the number of allowed clients to use this server (default: 1)
        raclients N
          the  number  of  allowed clients in remote administration mode to use
        this server (default: 1)
        usrpcli N
          the number of allowed users per client (default: $users)
        climode N
          strategy used to connect users with clients (default: 1)
          Available strategies:
            1. fill first client before go to next
        proto TYPE
          type of server (tcp|udp) - what protocol it  will  be  operating  for
        (default: tcp)
          ssl  is not used to transfer data (but it’s still used to establish a
        connection) (default: ssl is used)
          zlib is not used to compress data (default: zlib is used)
          listenports are temporary and differ for each client
          additional information about connections are logged
          try to obtain dns names of the computers rather than their numeric IP
          use ipv4 only
          use ipv6 only
          enable http proxy mode
