3. Running Seeks

This is an early version of Seeks, it is recommended your run it from the
repository you compiled it from.

cd src
./seeks

see ./seeks --help for options.

For example, by default seeks does not run as a daemon. If you would like
to have it so, run ./seeks --daemon

Other important options can be modified in the configuration file, src/config

By default, seeks runs as proxy on the local machine (127.0.0.1) on port 8250.
If you would like to change it, do it in the configuration file, src/config

Once started, to use seeks, tell your web browser to connect to the Internet
through seeks' web proxy.
