       qpsmtpd-forkserver - Fork-on-demand server for qpsmtpd


       qpsmtpd-forkserver [options]


       qpsmtpd-forkserver  is  the  qpsmtpd frontend script which binds to the
       SMTP TCP socket and forks as clients connect.


       --port port, -p port
              Binds to a specific port, instead of the default 2525.

       --user user, -u user
              On startup, switch to run as user instead of the starting  user.
              Applies  only  when started as root (as is normal when listening
              on port 25).

       --limit-connections limit, -c limit
              Accept  at  most  limit   simultaneous   connections.    Inbound
              connections beyondthis limit will be deferred or refused.

       --max-from-ip limit, -m limit
              Accept  at most limit simultaneous connections from any given IP
              address; does not override --limit-connections, if set.

       --listen-address addr, -l addr
              Bind to the local address addr, instead of the default  behavior
              of  binding  to all interfaces.  Can be specified multiple times
              to bind to more than one interface or local address.

       --detach, -d
              Detach from the controlling terminal at startup,  to  run  as  a
              standalone daemon.  See also --pid-file.

       --pid-file filename
              Upon  startup,  and  after  daemonizing if applicable, write the
              process ID to filename, for use by sysvinit control  scripts  or
              similar utilities.
