Multiple .B \-l mean listening on multiple addresses. The default behaviour is to listen on the address returned by .BR uname(2). .TP .BI \-p " port" Listens on the specified port (default 5060). It applies to the last address specified with .B \-l and to all the following that do not have a corresponding .B \-p. .TP .BI \-n " processes\-no" Specifies the number of children processes forked per interface (default 8). .TP .BI \-b " max_rcv_buf_size" Maximum receive buffer size which will not be exceeded by the auto-probing procedure even if the OS allows. .TP .BI \-m " shared_mem_size" Size of the shared memory which will be allocated (in Megabytes). .TP .BI \-w " working\-dir" Specifies the working directory. In the very improbable event that .B ser will crash, the core file will be generated here. .TP .BI \-t " chroot\-dir" Forces .B ser to chroot after reading the config file. .TP .BI \-u " uid" Changes the user id under which .B ser runs. .TP .BI \-g " gid" Changes the group id under which .B ser runs. .TP .BI \-P " pid\-file" Creates a file containing the pid of the main .B ser process. .SH FILES .PD 0 .B /usr/sbin/ser .br .B /etc/ser/ser.cfg .br .B /usr/lib/ser/modules/* .PD .SH AUTHORS This manual page was written by Andrei Pelinescu - Onciul <firstname.lastname@example.org>. .br .B ser was written by Andrei Pelinescu - Onciul, Bogdan Iancu, Daniel-Constantin Mierla, Jan Janak, Jiri Kuthan, Nils Ohlmeier, Ricardo Baratto, Stelios Sidiroglou-Douskos. .SH SEE ALSO .BR ser.cfg(5) .PP Full documentation on ser, including configuration guidelines, FAQs and licensing conditions, is available at http://www.iptel.org/ser/. .PP Report bugs at https://developer.berlios.de/bugs/?func=addbug&group_id=480 .
