sockd.fr - Frozen route file for multi-homed SOCKS proxy server
The frozen route file is produced by make_sockdfr and is essentially
the memory image of the parsed route file. Using the frozen route file
can reduce the start-up delay of the SOCKS server program since it no
longer has to parse the file contents.
When the SOCKS server starts, it always looks for the frozen route file
/etc/sockd.fr first. If that file is not found, it then tries to use
the plain-text route file /etc/sockd.route. If you use frozen route
file, you must remember to run make_sockdfr every time after you modify
the plain-text file or the SOCKS server will continue to use the frozen
version of a previous route file.
To find out the contents of a frozen route file, use dump_sockdfr.
