2. Invoking Yafc
yafc [options] [proto://][user[:password]@]hostname[:port][/directory]
The 'proto' keyword can be either 'ftp' for ordinary FTP protocol, or
'ssh' for SSH2 protocol (sftp).
- Try an anonymous login, ie login as "anonymous" with your email address as
password. Your email address is first looked for in the config file
(4.1 Keywords), then in the $EMAIL environment variable. If it's not
found, a guess is made from your user- and hostname.
- Print all messages sent to/from server.
- Prints the default configuration file to standard output.
- Try security mechanism MECH when logging in to the host specified on the
command line. This will override any 'mech' options in `yafcrc' or
`bookmarks'. MECH is a colon-separated string,
supported values are "krb4", "krb5" and "none". The mechanisms are tried in
the order specified.
- Do not read the users configuration file. This will cause yafc to use its
- Do not connect via the proxy. This should be used if connecting to a host on
the local network.
- Do not print the welcome message with copyright information when starting Yafc.
- `-r FILE'
- Read another configuration file.
- `-t FILE'
- Enable creation of trace file. Trace files are mainly for debugging and
includes every response and command Yafc receives/sends. If FILE is specified,
use that file instead of the default trace file
(`~/.yafc/trace/trace.pid', where pid is the process id number of Yafc.)
Trace files can grow quite large and can safely be deleted.
- Do not login automagically to the host specified on the command line. You can
still use bookmark aliases, though.
- As --noauto, but bookmark aliases is disabled.
- Print all responses received (without response code.)
- Use a different time to wait between connection attempts, in seconds.
This overrides the value set by
connect_wait_time in the configuration
- Use a different working directory for configuration files and
temporary files. Default is `~/.yafc'.
- Print version information on stdout and exit successfully.
- Print a short help description on stdout and exit successfully.
