systemd-socket-proxyd

SYNOPSIS
       systemd-socket-proxyd [OPTIONS...] HOST:PORT

       systemd-socket-proxyd [OPTIONS...] UNIX-DOMAIN-SOCKET-PATH

DESCRIPTION
       systemd-socket-proxyd is a generic socket-activated network socket
       forwarder proxy daemon for IPv4, IPv6 and UNIX stream sockets. It may
       be used to bi-directionally forward traffic from a local listening
       socket to a local or remote destination socket.

       One use of this tool is to provide socket activation support for
       services that do not natively support socket activation. On behalf of
       the service to activate, the proxy inherits the socket from systemd,
       accepts each client connection, opens a connection to a configured
       server for each client, and then bidirectionally forwards data between
       the two.

       This utility's behavior is similar to socat(1). The main differences
       for systemd-socket-proxyd are support for socket activation with
       "Accept=false" and an event-driven design that scales better with the
       number of connections.

OPTIONS
       The following options are understood:

       -h, --help
           Print a short help text and exit.

       --version
           Print a short version string and exit.

EXIT STATUS
       On success, 0 is returned, a non-zero failure code otherwise.

EXAMPLES
   Simple Example
       Use two services with a dependency and no namespace isolation.

       Example 1. proxy-to-nginx.socket

           [Socket]
           ListenStream=80

           [Install]
           WantedBy=sockets.target

       Example 2. proxy-to-nginx.service

           [Unit]
           Requires=nginx.service
           After=nginx.service

           [Service]

           # systemctl enable proxy-to-nginx.socket
           # systemctl start proxy-to-nginx.socket
           $ curl http://localhost:80/

   Namespace Example
       Similar as above, but runs the socket proxy and the main service in the
       same private namespace, assuming that nginx.service has PrivateTmp= and
       PrivateNetwork= set, too.

       Example 5. proxy-to-nginx.socket

           [Socket]
           ListenStream=80

           [Install]
           WantedBy=sockets.target

       Example 6. proxy-to-nginx.service

           [Unit]
           Requires=nginx.service
           After=nginx.service
           JoinsNamespaceOf=nginx.service

           [Service]
           ExecStart=/lib/systemd/systemd-socket-proxyd 127.0.0.1:8080
           PrivateTmp=yes
           PrivateNetwork=yes

       Example 7. nginx.conf

           [...]
           server {
               listen       8080;
               [...]

       Example 8. Enabling the proxy

           # systemctl enable proxy-to-nginx.socket
           # systemctl start proxy-to-nginx.socket
           $ curl http://localhost:80/
