    * **User/​Group**. **Remove these** if you would like sbbs to start as root and then drop privileges to the User & Group configured in your sbbs.ini. Possibly remove **PermissionsStartOnly** and **ExecStartPre** as well, as they would be unnecessary. ​  If you leave these in, ensure the User/Group settings in sbbs.ini are commented out.    * **User/​Group**. **Remove these** if you would like sbbs to start as root and then drop privileges to the User & Group configured in your sbbs.ini.

    * **PermissionsStartOnly**. This one tells systemd to execute ExecStartPre as root, but ExecStart as the user and group declared in User,​Group. ​ Can be removed if you remove the User/Group lines.    * **PermissionsStartOnly**.

-   * **ExecStartPre**. Capabilities are lost from the sbbs executable ​ever time it is recompiled. It is possible to mitigate the effect by running setcap just before the daemon is ran. The binding won't fail anymore using this. Please notice you can't point a symlink here, so modify the architecture directory to the right path (gcc.linux.x64.exe.release or gcc.linux.exe.release).+   * **ExecStartPre**.

    * **ExecStart**. If you don't want to get syslog entries duplicated you will have to run SBBS in daemonized mode, so the "​d"​ parameter is used. Syslog is implicit when daemonized, so there is no need for additional parameters. ​    * **ExecStart**.

    * **RestartSec**. It's advisable to wait some secs before attempting restarting in case of failure, just to give some time for binding release.    * **RestartSec**. It's advisable to wait some secs before attempting restarting in case of failure, just to give some time for binding release.
