     talkd — remote user communication server

     /usr/sbin/in.talkd [-dpq]

     Talkd is the server that notifies a user that someone else
     wants to initiate a conversation.  It acts a repository of
     invitations, responding to requests by clients wishing to ren‐
     dezvous to hold a conversation.  In normal operation, a client,
     the caller, initiates a rendezvous by sending a CTL_MSG to the
     server of type LOOK_UP (see ⟨protocols/talkd.h⟩).  This causes
     the server to search its invitation tables to check if an invi‐
     tation currently exists for the caller (to speak to the callee
     specified in the message).  If the lookup fails, the caller
     then sends an ANNOUNCE message causing the server to broadcast
     an announcement on the callee's login ports requesting contact.
     When the callee responds, the local server uses the recorded
     invitation to respond with the appropriate rendezvous address
     and the caller and callee client programs establish a stream
     connection through which the conversation takes place.

     [-d] Debug mode; writes copious logging and debugging informa‐
     tion to /var/log/talkd.log.

     [-p] Packet logging mode; writes copies of malformed packets to
     /var/log/talkd.packets.  This is useful for debugging interop‐
     erability problems.

     [-q] Don't log successful connects.

     talk(1), write(1)

     The talkd command appeared in 4.3BSD.
