This manual page documents briefly the opendchub command.

Open DC Hub is a Unix/Linux version of the hub software for the Direct Connect network. Direct Connect is a file sharing network made up by hubs, to which clients can connect. Once connected to a hub, the user can search for files on the hub or the network, or browse files of other users connected to the hub.

The Open DC Hub server can be administrated both from the local host and remotely. The admin port is by default 53696.
