This is a network server that listens for requests to run jukebox. It allows multiple computers on a home network to initiate jukebox requests to a jukebox host that is connected to the home's sound system.

There is no user authentication. Use jukebox itself via ssh if you want user authentication. If you want to control which hosts are allowed to connect to the server, launch it from inetd or xinetd and use tcpwrappers. Never allow packets for this server through your firewall.

The -a, -p and -g options override defaults from the configuration file. The -g option only applies when tracks are played in random order. There is no extra gap between tracks played sequentially (but there is a gap before the first track).

The -d option keeps jukeboxd in the foreground and makes it emit messages about what's happening to standard output.
