Chapter 16. Network Servers

Working behind scenes, taking care of vital things, the daemon is here.

The OpenBSD base system includes several servers to support a network. This chapter covers the following network servers:

  • Small-server handler inetd

  • Printer daemon lpd

  • DHCP daemon dhcpd

  • TFTP daemon tftpd

  • SNMP agent snmpd

  • SSH server sshd

This miscellany of small daemons supports the features covered in upcoming chapters.
