NAME
       fspd, in.fspd - File Service Protocol (FSP) server

SYNOPSIS
       fspd [-f configfile]

       in.fspd [-f configfile]

DESCRIPTION
       fspd is the server for an anonymous-ftp style archive called FSP. The
       main features of this service are: connection-less model, communication
       robustness, server resource protection, inter-client protection, and
       user friendly interface. Please read the INFO file bundled with the FSP
       source for more information.

OPTIONS
       -f                  May be used to specify an alternate configuration
                           file.
FILES
       .OWN.XXXXXXXX       Used to indicate the ownership of a directory.  If
                           this file is present in a directory, the directory
                           is owned by the machine whose inet number is
                           XXXXXXXX when printed as an 8-digit hex number.

       .README             A text file that is sent to the client when the
                           directory is entered giving information about the
                           directory.  It can only be hand created by the site
                           administrator at this time. This text file should
                           be no more than 1022 bytes in size. Any data above
                           this limit will be silently ignored.

       .FSP_OK_DEL         Existence of this file in a directory grants non-
                           owner machines the permission to delete items from
                           this directory.

       .FSP_OK_ADD         Existence of this file in a directory grants non-
                           owner machines the permission to add items to this
                           directory.

       .FSP_PRIVATE        Existence of this file in a directory means that
                           files in that directory cannot be read, i.e. they
                           are private.

       .FSP_OK_MKDIR       Existence of this file in a directory grants non-
                           owner machines the permission to create
                           subdirectories under the current directory.

       .TXXXXXXXXXXXX      Transient temporary file in the FSP directory cache
                           directory used for file uploading.

       .GXXXXXXXXXXXX      Transient temporary file in the FSP directory used
                           for file downloading through the fgrab command.

       .HTAB_DUMP          A file created in the top directory when fspd
                           receives an alarm signal.  It contains a listing of
                           the active clients in fspd's client table.

       fspd.conf           A file containing control information about how
                           specific features of the server are to be used. See
                           the example.conf file for explicit details.

       .FSP_CONTENT        File used to cache directory listing.  Such files
                           are normally created on demand in each directory
                           that fspd exports.  If a .FSP_CONTENT file exists
                           in a directory, but is not writable by the fspd
                           process, then the directory cannot be listed.  If
                           it does not exist and fspd fails in its attempt to
                           create a .FSP_CONTENT file, then fspd will create
                           one with a hashed name in a cache directory
                           specified during compile time.  Options can be set
                           at compile time such that fspd will create a cache
                           file in the cache directory even if a .FSP_CONTENT
                           file could have been created in the directory to be
                           listed.
