NAME

        afserver - active port forwarder server
 

SYNOPSIS

        afserver [ options ]
 

DESCRIPTION

        Afserver is a port forwarding program designed to be efficient and easy
        to use. It listens for  incoming  afclient  connections  at  listenport
        (default  listenport  is 50126). After successful client authorization,
        afserver listens for incoming user connections. When a new user connec‐
        tion  is  opened,  all  the  data is redirected to previously connected
        afclient, which redirects it to the specified destination host:port.
 

EXAMPLES

        afserver
          program starts with default options (become a daemon)
 
        afserver -v
          verbose mode is enabled (program won’t enter daemon mode)
 
        afserver -n localhost -l 5435 -m 6375
          program will listen on localhost:5435 for users and on localhost:6375
        for clients
