       frox.conf - configuration file for frox ftp proxy.


       The  frox  configuration  file consists of a series of option settings.
       Each setting consists of a (case insensitive) option name, followed  by
       the value(s) for that option.

       Values  are  separated  from  each  other  and  their  option  name  by
       whitespace. Optiions which are strings (eg.  filenames, usernames etc.)
       may be quoted with "" if they contain whitespace. Blank lines and lines
       beginning with a # are ignored.

       For documentation on individual options please read the  sample  config
       file which is well documented


       If  the configuration file is changed and frox is send SIGHUP then some
       parts of it may be reread.

       Options   which   require   special   privileges(eg.   Chroot,    User,
       TransparentData)  and  options  which  refer  to  the  file system (eg.
       LogFile, CacheDir). will not be changed.  If  the  program  is  running
       chrooted  and  with  dropped  priviledges then it is probably unable to
       change these, and I don’t want to give incentives to run it as root.

       Note that in order to find the config file for rereading it  should  a)
       be  readable  by  the user which frox drops to, b) be within the chroot
       jail, and c) have been specified with an absolute path.
