NAME
       sync_server - Cyrus IMAP documentation

       Server side of the synchronization (replication) engine

SYNOPSIS
       sync_server [ -C config-file ] [ -p ssf]

DESCRIPTION
       sync_server is the server side of the the replication system.  It runs
       on the target (replica) system and listens for connections from
       sync_client(8) which provides instructions for synchronizing the
       replica system with the master system.

       sync_server reads its configuration options out of the imapd.conf(5)
       file unless specified otherwise by -C.

OPTIONS
       -C config-file
              Use the specified configuration file config-file rather than the
              default imapd.conf(5).

       -p ssf Tell sync_server that an external layer exists.  An SSF
              (security strength factor) of 1 means an integrity protection
              layer exists.  Any higher SSF implies some form of privacy
              protection.
