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

/var/gopher

And fire up your gopher browser pointing to your host.

Enjoy!
