XFINDPROXY(1)       UNIX Programmer's Manual        XFINDPROXY(1)

NAME

     xfindproxy - locate proxy services

SYNOPSIS

     xfindproxy -manager managerAddr -name serviceName -server
     serverAddr [-auth] [-host hostAddr] [-options opts]

DESCRIPTION

     xfindproxy is a program used to locate available proxy ser-
     vices.  It utilizes the Proxy Management Protocol to commun-
     icate with a proxy manager.  The proxy manager keeps track
     of all available proxy services, starts new proxies when
     necessary, and makes sure that proxies are shared whenever
     possible.

     The -manager argument is required, and it specifies the net-
     work address of the proxy manager.  The format of the
     address is a standard ICE network id (for example,
     "tcp/blah.x.org:6500").

     The -name argument is required, and it specifies the name of
     the desired proxy service (for example, "LBX").  The name is
     case insensitive.

     The -server argument is also required, and it specifies the
     address of the target server.  The format of the address is
     specific to the proxy service specified with the -name argu-
     ment.  For example, for a proxy service of "LBX", the
     address would be an X display address (e.g, "blah.x.org:0").

     The -auth argument is optional.  If specified, xfindproxy
     will read 2 lines from standard input.  The first line is an
     authorization/authentication name. The second line is the
     authorization/authentication data in hex format (the same
     format used by xauth).  xfindproxy will pass this auth data
     to the proxy, and in most cases, will be used by the proxy
     to authorize/authenticate itself to the target server.

     The -host argument is optional.  If xfindproxy starts a new
     proxy service, it will pass the host specified.  The proxy
     may choose to restrict all connections to this host.  In the
     event that xfindproxy locates an already existing proxy, the
     host will be passed, but the semantics of how the proxy uses
     this host are undefined.

     The -options argument is optional.  If xfindproxy starts a
     new proxy service, it will pass any options specified.  The
     semantics of the options are specific to each proxy server
     and are not defined here.  In the event that xfindproxy
     locates an already existing proxy, the options will be
     passed, but the semantics of how the proxy uses these
     options are undefined.

     If xfindproxy is successful in obtaining a proxy address, it
     will print it to stdout.  The format of the proxy address is
     specific to the proxy service being used.  For example, for
     a proxy service of "LBX", the proxy address would be the X
     display address of the proxy (e.g, "blah.x.org:63").

     If xfindproxy is unsuccessful in obtaining a proxy address,
     it will print an error to stderr.
