ipsvd is a set of internet protocol service daemons. It currently includes a TCP/IP service daemon, and a UDP/IP service daemon. An internet protocol service (ipsv) daemon waits for incoming connections on a local socket. On incoming connections, the ipsv daemon conditionally runs an arbitrary program with standard input reading from the socket, and standard output writing to the socket, that handles the connection. Standard error is used for logging. ipsv daemons can be told to read and follow pre-defined instructions on how to handle incoming connections. It's possible to run different programs, or to set a different environment, or to deny a connection, or to set a per host concurrency limit, depending on the client's address or hostname. ipsvd can be used to run services normally run by inetd, xinetd, or tcpserver.
