4NAME
5----
6git-daemon - A really simple server for GIT repositories.
7
8SYNOPSIS
9--------
10'git-daemon' [--inetd | --port=n]
11
12DESCRIPTION
13-----------
14A really simple TCP git daemon that normally listens on port "DEFAULT_GIT_PORT"
15aka 9418. It waits for a connection, and will just execute "git-upload-pack"
16when it gets one.
17
18It's careful in that there's a magic request-line that gives the command and
19what directory to upload, and it verifies that the directory is ok.
20
21It verifies that the directory has the magic file "git-daemon-export-ok", and
22it will refuse to export any git directory that hasn't explicitly been marked
23for export this way.
24
25This is ideally suited for read-only updates, ie pulling from git repositories.
26
27OPTIONS
28-------
29--inetd::
30 Have the server run as an inetd service.
31
32--port::
33 Listen on an alternative port.
