iauth - The Internet Relay Chat Authentication Program

[ -v | -c configfile ]

iauth is a slave process used by the ircd program to perform the authentication of incoming TCP connections. The ircd program starts iauth upon startup.

iauth will close and reopen the log file whenever it receives a user signal 2, SIGUSR2. This is useful to rotate the log file.

When this flag is given, the program will read the configuration file specify and validate it. This is useful to check for errors in the setup.
This option dumps information about the version.
