3.15.1 Starting comsatd


Run as a standalone daemon.


The server is started from /etc/inetd.conf file:

comsat dgram  udp wait  root  /usr/sbin/comsatd \
comsatd -c /etc/comsat.conf

This is the default operation mode.


Test mode. In this mode, comsatd takes two arguments: URL of a mailbox and QID of the message from that mailbox, e.g.:

$ comsatd --test /var/mail/root 34589

Don’t detach from the controlling terminal, remain in foreground.
