Tcpserver and tcpclient for building TCP client-server apps

This package is based on the package 'ucspi-tcp' from project 'openSUSE:Factory:Contrib'.

Tcpserver and tcpclient are easy-to-use command-line tools for building TCP
client-server applications.

Tcpserver waits for incoming connections  and, for each  connection, runs a
program  of  your  choice.  Your  program  receives  environment  variables
showing the local and remote host names, IP addresses, and port numbers.

Tcpserver offers a concurrency  limit to  protect  you from  running out of
processes and memory.   When you  are handling 40 (by default) simultaneous
connections, tcpserver smoothly defers acceptance of new connections.

Tcpserver   also   provides   TCP  access  control   features,  similar  to
tcp-wrappers/tcpd's hosts.allow but much faster.  It's access control rules
are compiled into a  hashed format  with cdb,  so it  can easily  deal with
thousands of different hosts.

This package  includes  a  recordio  tool  that  monitors all the input and
output of a server.

Tcpclient makes a TCP connection and runs a program of your choice. It sets
up the same environment variables as tcpserver.

This package includes several sample clients built on top of tcpclient:
who@, date@, finger@, http@, tcpcat, and mconnect.

Tcpserver  and tcpclient  conform to  UCSPI, the UNIX Client-Server Program
Interface, using the TCP protocol.  UCSPI  tools are  available for several
different networks.
