UDPXD - A general purpose UDP relay/port forwarder/proxy

udpxd can be used to forward or proxy UDP client traffic to another port on another system. It also supports binding to a specific ip address which will be used as the source for outgoing packets. It supports ip version 4 and 6.


You can read the documentation without installing the software:

    perldoc udpxd.pod

If it is already installed, you can read the manual page:

    man udpxd

The manual page can also be read online.

I wrote a blog posting with some examples about udpxd.


This software doesn't have any external dependencies, but you need either BSD make or GNU make installed to build it.

First you need to check out the source code. Skip this, if you have already done so:

    git clone git@github.com:TLINDEN/udpxd.git

Next, change into the newly created directory 'udpxd' and compile the source code:

    cd udpxd

To install, type this command:

    sudo make install

This will install the binary to $PREFIX/sbin/udpxd and the manual page to $PREFIX/man/man1/udpxd.1. You can modify $PREFIX during installation time like this:

   make install PREFIX=/opt

Getting help

Although I'm happy to hear from udpxd users in private email, that's the best way for me to forget to do something.

In order to report a bug, unexpected behavior, feature requests or to submit a patch, please open an issue on github: https://github.com/TLINDEN/udpxd/issues.
