You have to create a configuration file first in order to use tcpmuxa. Otherwise no service will be available.
Configuration file format
- One line represents one service.
- Fields are seperated trough whitespace.
- Configuration variables can be specified using the following syntax:
$key=value. Only the
portcan optionally be specified with this syntax right now.
- Every service starts with its name. The name is case-insensitive.
- A network service continues with
net, the IP followed by the port.
- A local service continues with
local, the path to the executable followed by its arguments.
- Leading and trailing whitespace is ignored.
- Whitespace can’t be escaped.
- Lines starting with a

- Empty lines are allowed and do nothing.
$port=4242 # Local service: date date local /bin/date # Network service: rcssmonitor3d rcssmonitor3d net 127.0.0.1 3200
Place the configuration file named
tcpmuxa.conf either in the same directory you’re running tcpmuxa from (option 1)
or provide a path to the configuration file as an argument for the executable (option 2).
# Option 1: tcpmuxa # Option 2: tcpmuxa /etc/tcpmuxa.conf
