       mcserv - Midnight Commander file server.

       mcserv [-diqvf] [-p portnum]

       mcserv is the server program for the Midnight Commander networking file
       system.	It provides access to the host file system to clients  running
       the  Midnight  file system (currently, only the Midnight Commander file

       When invoked, the server will try to register itself with the  portmap‐
       per, to get a free system reserved port number.

       -d     Become  a daemon, you should use this flag if you start the pro‐
	      gram from one of the system startup files.  This flag will  make
	      the  program handle any number of incoming requests by forking a
	      new copy of itself for each client.

       -q     Quiet mode.

       -p     To make the server listen on the specified portnum port.

       -f     Force ftp authorization if classic fails. This is only useful on
	      systems  whose password checking method is not supported by this
	      version of mcserv.  Authorization is then done by trying to con‐
	      nect  to	the local ftp server and supplying user name and pass‐
	      word. Ftp server then says whether are you successfuly logged in
	      or  whether  you	typed a wrong password. Use this with care and
	      only when necessary.

       -v     Toggle on the verbose mode.

       This program currently uses port 9876, and not a	 system	 secure	 port.
       This  is a potential security problem since it could be run by any user
       on the system if the system daemon is not running.
