TRAMPOLINE(8)							 TRAMPOLINE(8)

NAME
       trampoline - forward incoming calls to another address

SYNOPSIS
       aux/trampoline [ -9 ] [ -a altaddr ] [ -m netdir ] addr

DESCRIPTION
       Trampoline  can	be  used  in a service file (see listen(8)) to link an
       incoming call to another address that provides the  service,  typically
       on another machine.

       Trampoline  dials  addr and copies data between that connection and its
       own standard input and output.

       The options are:

       -9     The connection carries only 9P messages.	In this	 case  trampo‚Äź
	      line will relay whole messages at a time.

       -a altaddr
	      Dial  altaddr  and  relay	 between  the two network connections,
	      ignoring standard input and output.

       -m netdir
	      Restrict forwarding to particular machines.  Netdir must be  the
	      incoming	call  directory.   Trampoline  finds  the caller's MAC
	      address m and checks that ndb(6) contains an entry with  ether=m
	      and  the attribute trampok.  If no such entry is found, the call
	      is rejected.

FILES
       /sys/log/trampoline
	      logs rejected calls
