gnunet-namestore-fcfsdHTTP server for GNU Name System First-Come-First-Served name registration

gnunet-namestore-fcfsd [-c FILENAME | --config=FILENAME] [-h | --help] [-L LOGLEVEL | --loglevel=LOGLEVEL] [-v | --version] [-z EGO | -zone=EGO]

Most users will not want to run an FCFS-zone and thus will not need this program.

gnunet-namestore-fcfsd runs a web server where users can register names to be mapped to their GNS zone. Names are made available on a First Come First Served basis (hence fcfs). Registered names do not expire. The HTTP server is run on the port that is specified in the configuration file in section "[fcfsd]" under the name "HTTPPORT".

It is possible to manage gnunet-gns-fcfsd using gnunet-(service-arm) by starting the daemon using "gnunet-arm -i fcfsd" or by setting "IMMEDIATE_START=YES" in the "fcfds" section of your configuration and the "-z ZONE" in as the "OPTION".

An FCFS-zone is run at GNS users are encouraged to register their zone with the FCFS authority.

If you want to run your own FCFS registrar, you need to first create a pseudonym (using "gnunet-identity -C NAME"), and use it with the -z option. After that, you can start the FCFSD service (possibly using gnunet-arm(1)).

The options are as follows:

Use the configuration file FILENAME.
Print short help on options.
Use LOGLEVEL for logging. Valid values are DEBUG, INFO, WARNING and ERROR.
Print GNUnet version number.
EGO | -zone=EGO
Specifies for which EGO FCFSD should manage the zone.

The full documentation for gnunet is maintained as a Texinfo manual. If the info(1) and gnunet programs are properly installed at your site, the command

info gnunet

should give you access to the complete handbook,

info gnunet-c-tutorial

will give you access to a tutorial for developers.

Depending on your installation, this information is also available in gnunet(7) and gnunet-c-tutorial(7).
