NAME
       xfindproxy - locate proxy services

SYNOPSIS
       xfindproxy  -manager  managerAddr  -name	serviceName -server serverAddr
       [-auth] [-host hostAddr]	[-options opts]

DESCRIPTION
       xfindproxy is a program used to locate available	 proxy	services.   It
       utilizes	the Proxy Management Protocol to communicate with a proxy man-
       ager.  The proxy	manager	keeps track of all available  proxy  services,
       starts  new  proxies  when  necessary,  and makes sure that proxies are
       shared whenever possible.

       The -manager argument is	required, and it specifies the network address
       of the proxy manager.  The format of the	address	is a standard ICE net-
       work id (for example, "tcp/blah.x.org:6500").

       The -name argument is required,	and  it	 specifies  the	 name  of  the
       desired	proxy service (for example, "LBX").  The name is case insensi-
       tive.

       The -server argument is also required, and it specifies the address  of
       the  target server.  The	format of the address is specific to the proxy
       service specified with the -name	argument.  For example,	 for  a	 proxy
       service	of  "LBX",  the	 address  would	 be an X display address (e.g,
       "blah.x.org:0").

       The -auth argument is optional.	If specified, xfindproxy will  read  2
       lines  from standard input.  The	first line is an authorization/authen-
       tication	name.  The second  line	 is  the  authorization/authentication
       data  in	 hex  format (the same format used by xauth).  xfindproxy will
       pass this auth data to the proxy, and in	most cases, will  be  used  by
       the proxy to authorize/authenticate itself to the target	server.

       The  -host argument is optional.	 If xfindproxy starts a	new proxy ser-
       vice, it	will pass  the	host  specified.   The	proxy  may  choose  to
       restrict	 all  connections  to this host.  In the event that xfindproxy
       locates an already existing proxy, the host will	 be  passed,  but  the
       semantics of how	the proxy uses this host are undefined.

       The  -options  argument	is optional.  If xfindproxy starts a new proxy
       service,	it will	pass any options  specified.   The  semantics  of  the
       options are specific to each proxy server and are not defined here.  In
       the event that  xfindproxy  locates  an	already	 existing  proxy,  the
       options	will  be passed, but the semantics of how the proxy uses these
       options are undefined.

       If xfindproxy is	successful in obtaining	a proxy	address, it will print
       it to stdout.  The format of the	proxy address is specific to the proxy
       service being used.  For	example, for a proxy  service  of  "LBX",  the
       proxy  address  would  be  the  X  display  address  of the proxy (e.g,
       "blah.x.org:63").

       If xfindproxy is	unsuccessful in	obtaining a  proxy  address,  it  will
       print an	error to stderr.
