       sockd.fc - Frozen configuration file for SOCKS server




       The  frozen  configuration  file  is  produced  by  make_sockdfc and is
       essentially the memory image of the parsed  configuration  file.  Using
       the  frozen  configuration  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
       configuration file /etc/sockd.fc first. If that file is not  found,  it
       then tries to use the plain-text configuration file /etc/sockd.conf. If
       you use frozen configuration, you must  remember  to  run  make_sockdfc
       every  time  after  you  modify the plain-text file or the SOCKS server
       will continue to use the frozen file of a previous configuration.

       To  find  out  the  contents  of  a  frozen  configuration  file,   use


       dump_sockdfc(8), make_sockdfc(8), sockd.conf(5), sockd.fc(5)
