supernode - n2n supernode daemon
supernode -l <port> [-v]
N2N is a peer-to-peer VPN system. Supernode is a node introduction registry,
broadcast conduit and packet relay node for the n2n system. On startup
supernode begins listening on the specified UDP port for node registrations,
and other packets to route. The supernode can service any number of
communities and routes packets only between members of the same community. The
supernode does not hold the community encryption key and so cannot snoop or
inject packets into the community.
Supernode can service a number of n2n communities concurrently. Traffic does not
cross between communities.
All logging goes to stdout.
- -l <port>
- listen on the given UDP port
- use verbose logging
- disable daemon mode (UNIX) and run in foreground.
- supernode -l 7654 -v
- Start supernode listening on UDP port 7654 with verbose output.
When suprenode restarts it loses all registration information from associated
edge nodes. It can take up to five minutes for the edge nodes to re-register
and normal traffic flow to resume.
supernode is a daemon and any exit is an error
