By default, Tox operates with UDP and is recommended, as TCP mode implies certain security considerations. +.TP +\fB\-p\fR +Enable TCP SOCKS5 proxy as specified in config.def.h when the package was built. +When this option is enabled, ratox will use a proxy on \fI127.0.0.1\fR and port +\fI9050\fR (note that this is a divergence from upstream). \fBChanging the host +and port requires rebuilding the package!\fR + +.SH File structure +In the following, \fI/\fR refers to the directory ratox has been started in. +.BR + +.SH Global slots (\fIname/\fR, \fIstatus/\fR, \fIrequest/\fR) + +Global slots allow you to change your name and status message and send and +accept friend requests. Each slot contains an \fBin\fR, \fBout\fR and +\fBerr\fR file or directory respectively. + +The \fBin\fR-file is a pipe waiting for user-input. If you want to change your +name or status, just pipe it to it. To send a friend request, pipe the Tox-ID +to \fBrequest/in\fR. + +The \fBout\fR-file contains the current state of a given parameter. In +\fIrequest/\fR, out is a directory containing named pipes for each pending +request. To accept or reject a friend request, pipe a \fI1\fR or \fI0\fR to a +FIFO respectively. + +.SH Friend slots + +For each friend added, ratox will create a folder in \fI/\fR named after the +friend's ID. It contains files and FIFOs to interact with your friends. + +\fBtext_in\fR and \fBfile_in\fR allow you to send messages and files just by piping them to them. +\fBtext_out\fR and \fBfile_out\fR allow you to read your friend's messages and accept file-transmissions. + +Accepting a file transmission is as easy as just piping the \fBfile_out\fR to a +file or other stream. + +\fBonline\fR, \fBname\fR, \fBstatus\fR and \fBfile_pending\fR are state-files +giving you information on the friend's status. +If you pipe a \fI1\fR to \fBremove\fR, the friend will be removed. + +.SH id file + +\fB/id\fR contains your own Tox-ID to pass on to your friends if you want them to add you. + +.SH "SEE ALSO" +.br +.B Homepage: +http://ratox.2f30.org/ +.br + +.SH AUTHOR +This manual page was written by kytv <killyourtv@i2pmail.org> for the Debian system (but may be used by others). +.br +Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document under the terms of the ISC License. +
