       ietd - iSCSI Enterprise Target Daemon


       ietd  [-c  configfile]  [-d debuglevel] [-f] [-g GID] [-h] [-a address]
       [-p port] [-u UID]


       The ietd program implements the user level  part  of  iSCSI  Enterprise
       Target software for building an iSCSI storage system on Linux.


       -c filename, --config=filename
              Specify configuration file, default is /etc/ietd.conf

       -d debuglevel, --debug=debuglevel
              Turns   on   debugging.  Logging  goes  to  /var/log/syslog  via

       -f, --foreground
              Act as a normal application which uses a console.

       -g GID, --gid=GID
              Specify running group id, default is current gid.

       -a address, --address=address
              Specify on which local address the server should listen, default
              is any.

       -p port, --port=port
              Specify on which port the server should listen, default is 3260.

       -h, --help
              Display help message on command line options.

       -u UID, --uid=UID
              Specify running user id, default is current uid.


              The  system  wide  configuration  file.  See   ietd.conf(5)  for
              further details.

       Task attributes is incomplete (all tasks are treated as  if  they  have
       the SIMPLE attribute.)

       SCSI task management is incomplete.

       NOP-In is incomplete.

       The target never sends a NOP-In of its own accord.

       Header and Data Digest in a discovery session are not implemented.

       Out-of-memory situation leads to the system crash (There are still some
       out-of-memory bugs.)
