NAME
       dbiproxy	- A proxy server for the DBD::Proxy driver

SYNOPSIS
	   dbiproxy <options> --localport=<port>

DESCRIPTION
       This tool is just a front end for the DBI::ProxyServer package. All it
       does is picking options from the	command	line and calling
       DBI::ProxyServer::main(). See DBI::ProxyServer for details.

       Available options include:

       --chroot=dir
	   (UNIX only)	After doing a bind(), change root directory to the
	   given directory by doing a chroot().	This is	useful for security,
	   but it restricts the	environment a lot. For example,	you need to
	   load	DBI drivers in the config file or you have to create hard
	   links to Unix sockets, if your drivers are using them. For example,
	   with	MySQL, a config	file might contain the following lines:

	       my $rootdir = '/var/dbiproxy';
	       my $unixsockdir = '/tmp';
	       my $unixsockfile	= 'mysql.sock';
	       foreach $dir ($rootdir, "$rootdir$unixsockdir") {
		   mkdir 0755, $dir;
	       }
	       link("$unixsockdir/$unixsockfile",
		    "$rootdir$unixsockdir/$unixsockfile");
	       require DBD::mysql;

	       {
		   'chroot' => $rootdir,
		   ...
	       }

	   If you don't	know chroot(), think of	an FTP server where you	can
	   see a certain directory tree	only after logging in. See also	the
	   --group and --user options.

       --configfile=file
	   Config files	are assumed to return a	single hash ref	that overrides
	   the arguments of the	new method. However, command line arguments in
	   turn	take precedence	over the config	file. See the "CONFIGURATION
	   FILE" section in the	DBI::ProxyServer documentation for details on
	   the config file.

       --debug
	   Turn	debugging mode on. Mainly this asserts that logging messages
	   of level "debug" are	created.

       --facility=mode
	   (UNIX only) Facility	to use for Sys::Syslog.	The default is daemon.

       --group=gid
	   After doing a bind(), change	the real and effective GID to the
	   given.  This	is useful, if you want your server to bind to a
	   privileged port (<1024), but	don't want the server to execute as
	   root. See also the --user option.

	   GID's can be	passed as group	names or numeric values.

       --localaddr=ip
	   By default a	daemon is listening to any IP number that a machine
	   has.	This attribute allows one to restrict the server to the	given
	   IP number.

       --localport=port
	   This	attribute sets the port	on which the daemon is listening. It
	   must	be given somehow, as there's no	default.

       --logfile=file
	   Be default logging messages will be written to the syslog (Unix) or
	   to the event	log (Windows NT). On other operating systems you need
	   to specify a	log file. The special value "STDERR" forces logging to
	   stderr. See Net::Daemon::Log	for details.

       --mode=modename
	   The server can run in three different modes,	depending on the
	   environment.

	   If you are running Perl 5.005 and did compile it for	threads, then
	   the server will create a new	thread for each	connection. The	thread
	   will	execute	the server's Run() method and then terminate. This
	   mode	is the default,	you can	force it with "--mode=threads".

	   If threads are not available, but you have a	working	fork(),	then
	   the server will behave similar by creating a	new process for	each
	   connection.	This mode will be used automatically in	the absence of
	   threads or if you use the "--mode=fork" option.

	   Finally there's a single-connection mode: If	the server has
	   accepted a connection, he will enter	the Run() method. No other
	   connections are accepted until the Run() method returns (if the
	   client disconnects).	 This operation	mode is	useful if you have
	   neither threads nor fork(), for example on the Macintosh. For
	   debugging purposes you can force this mode with "--mode=single".

       --pidfile=file
	   (UNIX only) If this option is present, a PID	file will be created
	   at the given	location. Default is to	not create a pidfile.

       --user=uid
	   After doing a bind(), change	the real and effective UID to the
	   given.  This	is useful, if you want your server to bind to a
	   privileged port (<1024), but	don't want the server to execute as
	   root. See also the --group and the --chroot options.

	   UID's can be	passed as group	names or numeric values.

       --version
	   Suppresses startup of the server; instead the version string	will
	   be printed and the program exits immediately.
