NAME

ocfserv - OCF server  

SYNOPSIS

ocfserv [-D] [-p path]  

DESCRIPTION

The OCF server, ocfserv, is a per-host daemon that acts as the central point of communications with all smartcards connected to the host. Applications that need to use a smartcard can do so by using the APIs in libsmartcard.so or smartcard.jar. The internal implementation of these APIs communicates with ocfserv to perform the requested function.

inetd(1M) automatically starts the ocfserv command when it is needed. Once started, ocfserv runs forever. If ocfserv is killed or crashes, it restarts automatically if necessary.

Because ocfserv is run automatically, there really is not a reason to run it manually. You must have root privileges to execute this utility.  

OPTIONS

The following options are supported:

-D Run ocfserv in debug mode.

-p path Specify property file name.

 

EXIT STATUS

The following exit values are returned:

0 Successful completion.

>0 An error occurred.
