       camserv-relay - program to start a camserv relay host


       camserv-relay <port> <camserv IP> <camservport>


       This  manual  page  documents  briefly the camserv-relay command.  This
       manual page  was  written  for  the  Debian  distribution  because  the
       original program does not have a manual page.

       camserv-relay is a program which relays a camserv video stream for load
       balancing purposes.  This connects as a client to a  camserv  streaming
       video  server,  and  then  acts as a camserv server, streaming the same
       data to clients. Useful when  the  computer  doing  the  streaming  has
       insufficient  CPU,  I/O, or network bandwidth to stream to the required
       number of clients.  A tree of camserv relays can handle massive  loads.


       A summary of options is included below.

       <port> The port which will serve the camserv relay on the localhost.

       <camserv IP>
              The IP address of the camserv server to connect to.

       <camserv port>
              The  port  at which the camserv server is running.  The camserv-
              relay will connect to this port  at  the  IP  address  given  by
              <camserv IP>.
