User permissions --real-user

User permissions --real-user

The Node will refuse to run unless it can relinquish root privileges once it has opened its ports. Long-running root-privileged servers with network access are a serious security risk.

If you are running on Linux or using a Docker container that doesnโ€™t have a non-root user, thatโ€™s a problem.

If it does have a non-root user, specify that userโ€™s uid, gid, and home directory to masq:

masq setup โ€”real-user 1000:1000:/home/username
