Installing Gophernicus in OpenBSD

Installing a Gopher server is very easy. With OpenBSD you only have to install from packages or ports the Gophernicus server.

pkg_add -vr gophernicus

You need to create the following file:

vi /etc/inetd.conf

And add the following line:

gopher stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/local/libexec/in.gophernicus in.gophernicus -h <hostname>

Enable and start inetd

doas rcctl enable inetd
doas rcctl start inetd

And you are all set.
Put some files under


And fire up your gopher browser pointing to your host.
