       omniMapper - Simple proxy for CORBA naming service from omniORB


       omniMapper [options]


       This manual page documents briefly the omniMapper command.

       omniMapper  is a simple daemon which listens on port 2809 (or any other
       port)  and  redirects  IIOP  requets  for  configured  object  keys  to
       associated  persistent  IORs.   It can be used to make a naming service
       (even an old non-INS aware version of omniNames or other  ORB’s  naming
       service) appear on port 2809 with the object key NameService.  The same
       goes for any other service you may wish to specify, such as an interace


       A  summary  of  options is included below.  For a complete description,
       see the HTML pages included in the omniorb4-doc package.

       -port port
              This allows you to choose a port other than 2809 to listen on.

       -config config_file
              This specifies a  location  for  the  configuration  file.   The
              default name is /etc/omniMapper.cfg.

       -v     omniMapper  does  not normally print anything; this option makes
              it verbose so it prints configuration information and  a  record
              of the redirections it makes to standard output.


       The  configuration file is very simple.  Each line contains a string to
       be used as an object key, some white space and an  IOR  (or  any  valid
       URI)  that  it  will  redirect  that object key to.  Comments should be
       prefixed with a # character.  For example:
           # Example omniMapper.cfg
           NameService         IOR:000f...
           InterfaceRepository IOR:0100...


       The programs are documented fully by  the  HTML  documentation  in  the
       omniorb4-doc package.
