Subject: [PATCH] utils/ Clarify the --name argument usage
Date: Tue,  1 Oct 2019 21:52:41 -0300
Message-ID: <> (raw)

From: Marcos Paulo de Souza <>

The man page does not clarifies that the --name argument is only used by
the sm-notify command, and statd itself listen to all interfaces. This
change makes clear that the --name argument is only passed to sm-notify.
