    I get an error message when starting 'cflowd':

    It appears that cflowdmux started correctly. My cflowd.conf file is as
    follows:

    outside: {130} cat cflowd.conf
    OPTTIONS {
            LOGFACILITY: local6
            TCPCOLLECTPORT: 2056
            TABLESOCKFILE: /var/flow/etc/cflowdtable.socket
            FLOWDIR: /var/flow
            FLOWFILELEN: 1000000
            NUMFLOWFILES: 10
            MINLOGMISSED: 300
    }
    CISCOEPORTER {
            HOST: 192.168.21.1
            ADDRESSES: { 192.168.25.1,
                            }
            CFDATAPORT: 9991
            COLLECT: { flows }
    }
    COLLECTOR {
            HOST: 127.0.0.1
            AUTH: none
    }

    I am unsure about the entry "TABLESOCKFILE:". Is this the name of the
    "named stream socket" and am I supposed to create it? If so how do I create
    it? Thanks.
