Contents The ucspi-tcp package contains tcpserver, tcprules, tcprulescheck, argv0, fixcrio, recordio, rblsmtpd, tcpclient, who@, date@, finger@, http@, tcpcat, mconnect, addcr and delcr You can also find detailed descriptions of each of these programs at , but here is a brief summary: Description tcpserver tcpserver listens for incoming TCP connections on a given port, and runs a program of your choosing in response to a connection. tcprules tcprules compiles rules that govern access control for tcpserver into a fast access database format. tcprulescheck tcprulescheck makes it possible to see how tcpserver will react to connections from a given address without actually having to connect via that address. This is useful for checking to see if the access control rules you are using are doing what you expected. argv0 argv0 runs a given program with a specified 0th argument. fixcrio fixcrio inserts carriage returns at the end of lines when they are missing. recordio recordio records all input and output of a program given as an argument. rblsmtpd rblsmtpd is a spam blocking program that works in conjunction with your SMTP daemon and tcpserver . tcpclient tcpclient creates a connection to a TCP port for a given program. who@ who@ is a demonstration program using tcpclient that has the functionality of the rwho program. It requires a server running sysstat on port 11. date@ date@ is a demonstration program using tcpclient that will return the system time of a remote host which is running a daytime service on port 13. finger@ finger@ is a demonstration program using tcpclient that mimics the functionality of the finger program. It requires a server running fingerd on port 79. http@ http@ downloads web pages from web servers. tcpcat tcpcat connects to a TCP port and prints all that is returned from the port. mconnect mconnect connects to a TCP port, delivers any input specified to the port, and prints any output from the port. addcr addcr adds carriage returns to files. This and delcr are useful for converting between Windows to Unix file formats. delcr delcr removes carriage returns from files.
