Afghan Hound Quote of the Day Daemon project is a TCP/UDP quote-of-the-day server.

Afghan Hound Quote of the Day Daemon uses both TCP and UDP port 17 to return a random quote from fortune(6) style quote files. It has performance benefits over other programs which use fortune(6) to source their quotes.

The server also includes the ability to limit the number of client connections per second. Client and benchmarking programs are included in the package.

Here are some key features of "Afghan Hound Quote of the Day Daemon":

RFC865 compatibility - The official standard for qotd (port 17) services.
Only needs root if listening on ports lower than 1024, however it should drop root as soon as possible.
Uses standard fortune(6) text-file, text-file.dat style quote files.
All new code to read and create fortune files.
Listens on both TCP and UDP user specifiable ports.
Can limit returned quotes to lie in a max-size, min-size range.
Can limit maximum number of connections per second independently on both TCP and UDP.
Can log connections, optionally recording hostname and ident information.
Logging can either be to a specified log file, or to syslog
Handles rot13-encoded (offensive) quotes, which can be enabled or disabled.
Many configuration items can be changed at run-time.
Known to compile on Solaris 2.5 (Ultra SPARC) and Linux 2.2.16 (Intel and sparc32). (With gcc everywhere and Sun's cc on Solaris.)

What's New in This Release:

Bug fixes: signal.c:
client.c: Added gcc __attribute__ thing to signal handlers, elimiates warning.
Added F_NOTIFY to allow auto reloading if fortune files change.
