Set of Internet protocol service daemons
'ipsvd' is a set of Internet protocol service daemons for TCP/IP and UDP/IP. A daemon waits for incoming connections on a socket; for new connections, it conditionally runs an arbitrary program to handle the connection. The daemons can be told to read and follow pre-defined instructions on how to handle incoming connections. Based on the client's IP address or hostname, they can run different programs, set a different environment, deny a connection, or set a per host concurrency limit. 'ipsvd' can be used to run services usually run by inetd, xinetd, or tcpserver. Normally the ipsv daemons are run by a supervisor process, such as 'runsv' from the runit package, or 'supervise' from the daemontools package.
