BINKD(8)		    System Manager's Manual		      BINKD(8)

NAME
       binkd - transfer	files between two Fidonet systems over TCP/IP

SYNOPSIS
       binkd [-CcDipqrsvdmh] [ -P node ] config-file

DESCRIPTION
       Binkd is	a Fidonet mailer designed to operate via TCP/IP	networks. As a
       FTN-compatible internet daemon, it makes	possible efficient utilization
       of  TCP/IP protocol suite as a transport	layer in FTN-based (Fido Tech-
       nology Network) networks.

       Binkd expects your spool	for Fido-like networks to  be  in  BSO	("Bink
       style outbound")	or optionaly ASO ("Amiga style outbound") format.  BSO
       is also used by ifmail and BinkleyTerm mailers.

OPTIONS
       -C     Binkd running with this option  will  reread  the	 configuration
	      file  if	it is changed. The modification	time of	the configura-
	      tion file	is checked every 60 seconds and	on every incoming  and
	      outgoing connection.

       -c     Start client only. Normally Binkd	starts both server and client.

       -D     Run Binkd	as a daemon (cannot be used for	client-only mode).

       -i     Run Binkd	from inetd.

       -P     Poll  a  node.  An empty *.ilo file in the outbound will be cre-
	      ated, which will force Binkd to connect to and to	 receive  mail
	      from  the	 node  ( Binkd will also add "Node node	* -" record to
	      the table-of-nodes in Binkd 's memory if there is	no  entry  for
	      the node in the configuration file).

       -p     Start  client manager, process polls, quit if the	queue seems to
	      be empty after the next rescan. Implies -c.

       -q     Quiet mode. Turns	off printq, conlog and percents	statements  of
	      configuration.

       -r     Disable crypt traffic.

       -s     Start server only. Normally Binkd	starts both server and client.

       -v     Be verbose.  Binkd -v will dump binkd's version and quit.

       -vv    Dump version and compiled-in options.

       -d     Dump parsed config and exit.

       -m     Disable CRAM-MD5 authorization. Implies -r.

       -h     Print help message.

SIGNALS
       SIGHUP Causes Binkd to reload it's config.

ENVIROMENT
       BINKD_LOG
	      log  file	name.  Binkd uses this enviroment variable if the log-
	      file token is not	defined	in the config file
