26.1 Socket Directory

The socket directory defaults either to $HOME/.screen or simply to /tmp/screens or preferably to /usr/local/screens chosen at compile-time. If screen is installed setuid root, then the administrator should compile screen with an adequate (not NFS mounted) SOCKDIR. If screen is not running setuid-root, the user can specify any mode 700 directory in the environment variable $SCREENDIR.
