Running a Kerberized NetSolve Client

  1. Set up the necessary environment variables:
    UNIX> setenv NETSOLVE_AGENT netsolve.agent.host
      

  2. Run kinit to get a ticket-granting ticket for yourself. You don't have to do this if you already have a ticket and it has not expired.

  3. Run your NetSolve program. If the server contacted requires authentication, the NetSolve client automatically contacts the Kerberos Key Distribution Center for a ticket and sends it to the server. If this client is authorized to utilize the NetSolve server services will be granted to the client, if not, an AUTHENTICATION_REJECTED error will be returned to the client.
