Reference Manual of DeleGate

DeleGate reference manual version 9.9 / Unix

Invocation from Inetd
Both "nowait" and "wait" status can be specified in inetd.conf. In "nowait" status, the DeleGate will processes just one request (session) and exits, thus is ineffective. In "wait" status, the DeleGate will process multiple requests; maximum count of request may be limited to N by "MAXIMA=service:N".

Privileged operations without being superuser
Some operations of DeleGate needs the privilege of super-user, but running whole DeleGate process under super-user's ability is not desirable for security. To solve the problem, you can execute DeleGate by normal user while executing a privileged operation by a small external program with "set user ID on execution" flag. Those external subsidiary programs are placed at DGROOT/subin/ by optional installation.
