XFINDPROXY(1)           FreeBSD General Commands Manual          XFINDPROXY(1)

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
       manager.  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
       network 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
       insensitive.

       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/authentication 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
       service, 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.
