occtl — OpenConnect VPN server control tool

Synopsis

occtl [´COMMAND´]

Description

This a control tool that can be used to send commands to ocserv. When called without any arguments the tool can be used interactively, where each command is entered on a command prompt; alternatively the tool can be called with the command specified as parameter. In the latter case the tool´s exit code will reflect the successful execution of the command.

Options

-s, --socket-file=FILE

Specify the server´s occtl socket file. This option is only needed if you have multiple servers.

-j, --json

Output will be JSON formatted. This option can only be used with non-interactive output, e.g., ´occtl --json show users´.

-n, --no-pager

No pager will be used over output data.

--debug

Provide more verbose information in some commands.

-h, --help

Display usage information and exit.

-v, --version

Output version of program and exit.

Implementation Notes

This tool uses unix domain sockets to connect to ocserv.

Examples

The tool can be run interactively when run with no arguments. When arguments are given they are interpreted as commands. For example:

$ occtl show users

Any command line arguments to be used as options must precede the command (if any), as shown below.

$ occtl --json show users

Exit status

0

Successful program execution.

1

The operation failed or the command syntax was not valid.
