        afmserver - the multi-stream server of the afbackup package


        afmserver [ <options> ] [ <configuration-file> ]


        The  multi-stream  server  able  to  serve several clients in parallel.
        This program works as a protocol multiplexing frontend for  the  normal
        server,  that  in  turn  is  started as backend in slave mode.  For the
        client side this server looks exactly like  the  normal  single  stream
        server,  so  for  them  there is nothing special contac- ting the multi
        stream server.  The clients must pass a unique identifier to the  multi
        stream  server. Otherwise it cannot distinguish the clients, especially
        when dispatching the data on tape to the clients. By default this iden‐
        tifier  is the official hostname of the client, that is determined from
        the connection. A client may pass a different identifier  after  having
        connected and authenticated successfully.  The options are identical to
        those of the server program except for option -S, that is not  applica‐
        ble  here, cause the multi-stream server doesn’t know a slave mode. The
        except for the following, that are understood only by mserver:
        -d     Daemonize.  Go into the background and run forever.  This is the
               way, the multi stream server can be started  without  using  the
               inetd. -p should be supplied when using this option
        -p <port>
               The  TCP port number or service name, the server should bind to.
               If started via inetd, the inetd binds to the port and starts the
               mserver  connected  to  the  port.  When  started as daemon, the
               mserver must be told the port to bind to. If not given, the ser‐
               vice  entry afmbackup is used or, if not found, the default port


               Server configuration file
               The directory for logging the server actions
               Some internal state information of the server.
