NAME
       git-annex-remotedaemon - persistent communication with remotes

SYNOPSIS
       git annex remotedaemon

DESCRIPTION
       The remotedaemon provides persistent communication with remotes.

       Several types of remotes are supported:

       For ssh remotes, the remotedaemon tries to maintain a connection to the
       remote git repository, and uses git-annex-shell notifychanges to detect
       when the remote git repository has changed, and fetches changes from it.
       For this to work, the git remote must have git-annex-shell(1) installed,
       with notifychanges support. The first version of git-annex-shell that
       supports it is 5.20140405.

       For tor-annex remotes, the remotedaemon runs a tor hidden service,
       accepting connections from other nodes and serving up the contents of the
       repository. This is only done if you first run git annex enable-tor.  Use
       git annex p2p to configure access to tor-annex remotes.

       Note that when remote.<name>.annex-pull is set to false, the remotedaemon
       will avoid fetching changes from that remote.

OPTIONS
       --foreground

              Don't fork to the background, and communicate on stdin/stdout
              using a simple textual protocol. The assistant runs the
              remotedaemon this way.

              Commands in the protocol include LOSTNET, which tells the
              remotedaemon that the network connection has been lost, and causes
              it to stop any TCP connctions. That can be followed by RESUME when
              the network connection comes back up.
