ndn-autoconfig-server [-h] [-V] [-p PREFIX]… FACEURI


ndn-autoconfig-server is a daemon that implements the server part for the stage 1 of NDN hub discovery procedure.

This daemon essentially waits for Interests for /localhop/ndn-autoconf/hub and satisfies them with a Data packet that contains a TLV-encoded FaceUri block. The value of this block is the Uri for the HUB, preferably a UDP tunnel.
