       latd - LAT daemon


       latd [options]
       [-dvVht]  [-i  interface] [-g greeting] [-s service] [-c circuit-timer]
       [-r rating]


       latd is a daemon that serves incoming  and  outgoing  LAT  (Local  Area
       Transport) requests.
       The  parameters  for  LATD  are  just defaults, they can all be changed
       using latcp(8).

       latd should not be started directly but should  be  invoked  using  the
       command  latcp -s.  Any arguments for latd can be added to the latcp -s
       command line and many can be set in /etc/latd.conf(5).

       -i     Set the interface to be used for LAT communication. If  this  is
              not  specified  then  all ethernet interfaces will be used. This
              option  can  be  specified  multiple  times  to  enable  several
              interfaces. eg:
              -i  eth0 -i eth2 Note, only Linux can use more than one ethernet
              interface at a time. *BSD versions will use the first  available
              ethernet adaptor unless it is overridden by -i.

       -g     Sets the greeting for this node.

       -s     Set  the  default service name for this node. The default is the
              node name.

       -c     Sets the circuit timer. The default is 80 (ms);

       -r     Sets the rating for the default service. If the -t switch is not
              present  this rating will be the maximum rating for the service.
              The load average of the machine will be used to recalculate  the
              rating  each time the servuce is announced. This allows terminal
              servers to do load balancing.

       -t     Makes the rating static. It will not change as the  system  load

       -d     Don’t fork and run the background. Use this for debugging.

       -v     Verbose.  The more of these there are the more verbose latd will
              be. Don’t use more than one for normal operation because it will
              seriously impair performance.

       -h -?  Displays help for using the command.

       -V     Show the version of latd.
