Configuration

In order for qaul-hubd to work properly it will have to run in the background to handle incoming and outgoing network connections. It's recommended to launch it via a user systemd unit.

[Unit]
Description=qaul.net hub daemon
After=network.target

[Service]
Type=simple
ExecStart=$HOME/bin/qaul-hubd <your parameters here>

Save this file in ~/.local/share/systemd/user/

Now you can reload the daemon and start the unit.

$ systemctl daemon-reload --user
$ systemctl enable --user qaul-hubd.service
$ systemctl start --user qaul-hubd.service
