SYNC_SERVER(8) Cyrus IMAP SYNC_SERVER(8)

NAME

sync_server - Cyrus IMAP documentation

Server side of the synchronization (replication) engine

SYNOPSIS

sync_server [ -C config-file ] [ -p ssf]

DESCRIPTION

sync_server is the server side of the the replication system. It runs on the target (replica) system and listens for connections from sync_client(8) which provides instructions for synchronizing the replica system with the master system.

sync_server reads its configuration options out of the imapd.conf(5) file unless specified otherwise by -C.

OPTIONS

Use the specified configuration file config-file rather than the default imapd.conf(5).

Tell sync_server that an external layer exists. An SSF (security strength factor) of 1 means an integrity protection layer exists. Any higher SSF implies some form of privacy protection.

EXAMPLES

sync_server is commonly included in the SERVICES section of cyrus.conf(5) like so:

SERVICES {

imap cmd="imapd -U 30" listen="imap" prefork=0
imaps cmd="imapd -s -U 30" listen="imaps" prefork=0 maxchild=100
pop3 cmd="pop3d -U 30" listen="pop3" prefork=0
pop3s cmd="pop3d -s -U 30" listen="pop3s" prefork=0 maxchild=100
