frox.conf(5)		      File Formats Manual		  frox.conf(5)

NAME
       frox.conf - configuration file for frox ftp proxy.

DESCRIPTION
       The  frox  configuration	 file consists of a series of option settings.
       Each setting consists of	a (case	insensitive) option name, followed  by
       the value(s) for	that option.

       Values  are  separated  from each other and their option	name by	white-
       space. Optiions which are strings (eg.  filenames, usernames etc.)  may
       be quoted with "" if they contain whitespace. Blank lines and lines be-
       ginning with a #	are ignored.

       For documentation on individual options please read the	sample	config
       file which is well documented

RE-READING
       If  the configuration file is changed and frox is send SIGHUP then some
       parts of	it may be reread.

       Options which require special privileges(eg. Chroot, User, Transparent-
       Data)  and  options  which  refer  to  the  file	 system	 (eg. LogFile,
       CacheDir). will not be changed. If the program is running chrooted  and
       with  dropped  priviledges  then	it is probably unable to change	these,
       and I don't want	to give	incentives to run it as	root.

       Note that in order to find the config file for rereading	it  should  a)
       be  readable  by	 the user which	frox drops to, b) be within the	chroot
       jail, and c) have been specified	with an	absolute path.
