* Preforking Managed Mode (PreFork)
* Forking Mode
* Multiplexing Mode using a single process
* Multi port accepts on Single, Preforking, and Forking modes
* Simultaneous accept/recv on tcp, udp, and unix sockets
* Safe signal handling in Fork/PreFork avoids perl signal trouble
* User customizable hooks
* Chroot ability after bind
* Change of user and group after bind
* Basic allow/deny access control
* Customized logging (choose Syslog, log_file, or STDERR)
* HUP able server (clean restarts via sig HUP)
