guacd.conf(5)		       Apache Guacamole			 guacd.conf(5)

       /usr/local/etc/guacamole-server/guacd.conf  -  Configuration  file  for

       /usr/local/etc/guacamole-server/guacd.conf is  the  configuration  file
       for  the	 Guacamole  proxy daemon used by the Guacamole web application
       and framework, guacd.  Use of this file is entirely optional,  and  all
       of  its	options	 can  be  specified from the command line when running
       guacd.  If you provide both the guacd.conf file and  command  line  op-
       tions, the command line options will take precedence.

       guacd.conf is made up of	sections, where	each section contains a	set of
       parameter/value pairs. The parameters available	are  dictated  by  the
       section in use, and parameters may only be specified within a section.

       The  beginning of each section is denoted with a	section	name in	brack-
       ets, and	each section ends implicitly with the beginning	of a new  sec-
       tion, or	at the end of the file.

	      Contains parameters which	control	how guacd behaves as a server,
	      from a network perspective.

	      Parameters which configure how guacd behaves as a	 daemon,  such
	      as what file should contain the PID, if any.

       [ssl]  Parameters  which	 control the SSL support of guacd, such	as the
	      certificate and private key used for encryption of the Guacamole
	      protocol.	 This  section	and  its  parameters are only valid if
	      guacd was	built with SSL support.

       Parameters within sections are written as a parameter name, followed by
       an  equals sign,	followed by the	parameter value, all on	one line. Com-
       ments may be placed anywhere, and consist of arbitrary text following a
       # symbol	until end-of-line:

       name = value # Some arbitrary comment text

       Beware  that it is the combination of the section name with the parame-
       ter name	that makes up the fully	qualified name of  a  parameter.  Each
       parameter  absolutely must be placed only within	its proper section, or
       guacd.conf will fail to be parsed, and guacd will not start.

       If special characters need to be	placed within a	parameter value,  such
       as  whitespace, #, ", or	\, the entire value must be enclosed in	double
       quotes, and each	occurrence of "	or \ within the	value must be  escaped
       with backslashes:

       name = "quoted #	value \\ with \" special characters"

       bind_host = HOSTNAME
	      Requires	guacd  to  bind	 to a specific host when listening for
	      connections. By default, guacd will bind to localhost only.

       bind_port = PORT
	      Requires guacd to	bind to	a specific  port  when	listening  for
	      connections. By default, guacd will bind to port 4822.

       log_level = LEVEL
	      Sets  the	maximum	level at which guacd will log messages to sys-
	      log and, if running in the foreground, the console.  Legal  val-
	      ues  are	trace,	debug,	info, warning, and error.  The default
	      value is info.

       pid_file	= FILE
	      Causes guacd to  write  its  PID	to  the	 specified  file  upon
	      startup. Note that guacd must have sufficient privileges to cre-
	      ate or write this	file, or it will fail to start.	This parameter
	      is  typically  needed  for startup scripts, such that the	script
	      can report on the	status of guacd	and kill it if necessary.

       If guacd	was built with SSL support, then connections between  the  web
       application  and	 guacd	can be encrypted if an SSL certificate and key
       file are	given.

       When using a chain of certificates, you must append the additional cer-
       tificates  to your server certificate. This can be done easily with the
       standard	cat command. Beware that the certificate for guacd must	be the
       first certificate in the	file.

       server_certificate = CERTIFICATE	FILE
	      Enables  SSL/TLS using the given cerficiate file.	Future connec-
	      tions to guacd will require SSL/TLS enabled in the  client  (the
	      web application).

       server_key = KEY	FILE
	      Enables SSL/TLS using the	given private key file.	Future connec-
	      tions to guacd will require SSL/TLS enabled in the  client  (the
	      web application).

	      #	guacd.conf example


	      pid_file = /var/run/


	      bind_host	= localhost
	      bind_port	= 4822


	      server_certificate = /usr/local/etc/ssl/certs/guacd.crt
	      server_key = /usr/local/etc/ssl/private/guacd.key
