NAME mcserv - Midnight Commander file server. USAGE mcserv [-diqvf] [-p portnum] DESCRIPTION mcserv is the server program for the Midnight Commander networking file system. It provides access to the host file system to clients running the Midnight file system (currently, only the Midnight Commander file manager). When invoked, the server will try to register itself with the portmapper, to get a free system reserved port number. OPTIONS -d Become a daemon, you should use this flag if you start the program from one of the system startup files. This flag will make the program handle any number of incoming requests by forking a new copy of itself for each client. -q Quiet mode. -p To make the server listen on the specified portnum port. -f Force ftp authorization if classic fails. This is only useful on systems whose password checking method is not supported by this version of mcserv. Authorization is then done by trying to connect to the local ftp server and supplying user name and password. Ftp server then says whether are you suc- cessfuly logged in or whether you typed a wrong password. Use this with care and only when neces- sary. -v Toggle on the verbose mode.

This is a potential security problem since it could be run by any user on the system if the system daemon is not running.
