alevtd(1)			     General Commands Manual				alevtd(1)

NAME
       alevtd - webserver for videotext pages

SYNOPSIS
       alevtd [ options ]

DESCRIPTION
       alevtd  is  http daemon which serves videotext pages as HTML.  Tune in some station with a
       utility like v4lctl or some TV application.  Then start	it  and  point	your  browser  to
       http://localhost:5654/

       Pages   may   be   requested  either  in  HTML  format  (http://localhost:5654/<page>/  or
       http://localhost:5654/<page>/<subpage>.html)  or  in  ASCII  text  format   (http://local-
       host:5654/<page>/<subpage>.txt).  Subpage "00" can be used for pages without subpages.

OPTIONS
       -h     print a short help text and the default values for all options.

       -v dev set vbi device (default: /dev/vbi).

       -d     enable debug output.

       -s     Write  a	start/stop  notice and serious errors to the syslog.  Specify this option
	      twice to get a verbose log (additional log events like dropped connections).

       -t sec set network timeout to >sec< seconds.

       -c n   set the number of allowed parallel connections to >n<.  This is a per-thread limit.

       -p port
	      listen on port >port< for incoming connections.  Default 5654.

       -n hostname
	      set the hostname which the server should use (required for redirects).

       -i ip  bind to IP-address >ip<.

       -l log log all requests to the logfile >log< (common log format).  Using "-"  as  filename
	      makes alevtd print the access log to stdout, which is only useful together with the
	      -F switch (see below).

       -L log same as above, but additional flush every line.  Useful if  you  want  monitor  the
	      logfile with tail -f.

       -u user
	      set uid to >user< (after binding to the tcp port).  This option is allowed for root
	      only.

       -g group
	      set gid to >group< (after binding to the tcp port).  This  option  is  allowed  for
	      root only.

       -F     don't  run as daemon.  alevtd will not fork into background, not detach from termi-
	      nal and report errors to stderr.

       -r     poll tv frequency, clear vtx page cache if a frequency change was detected.
