Description Hank Leininger 2022-11-15 02:01:38 UTC
There are a few options one might need to pass to iodined that /etc/{init.d,conf.d}/iodined can't support, such as:

       -d device  Use the TUN device 'device' instead of the normal one...

       -c  Disable checking the client IP address on all incoming requests

       -i max_idle_time  stop the server after this much idle time

I don't think it's worth endlessly extending the list of specific variables; I propose we just add a IODINED_ARGS for site-specific extensions, as various other conf.d/init.d scripts do.

Will submit a PR.
