Starting with version 1.6, most aspects of Anetd's behavior are controlled
at runtime via configuration files. Anetd 1.6 supports the use of two
anetd.conf (master) and
anetd.conf.local (local). The master configuration file, if
present, is read first, followed by the local configuration file. The
use of two configuration files is intended primarily for the ABone,
where the ABOCC controls the master configuration file, while node
administrators can make customizations in the local configuration file.
A complete list of configuration items (keys) and their default values
appears in Table 1.
The default location for the master configuration file depends on whether Anetd is configured for ABone operation (see section 3.1). If so, it looks for its master configuration file in
<abocc_user>is the OS username of the Anetd process acting in the abocc role (default: abocc), and
<abone_role>is the ABone role under which Anetd is running. If Anetd is running standalone, it looks for its master configuration file in
-c <file-path>(see section 3.5). The default location for the local configuration file (in all cases) is
~/anetd/etc/anetd.conf.local, which can be modified by setting the configuration key
local_conf_filein the master configuration file.
