NAME

       kftgtd - Server for kftgt, a Kerberos v4 ticket forwarding utility

SYNOPSIS

       kftgtd

DESCRIPTION

       kftgtd is the server for kftgt.  It accepts forwarded Kerberos v4
       ticket-granting tickets and saves them for later use by a login
       session.  Access checking is done the same as Kerberos v4 klogind(8).

       See kftgt(1) for more information about kftgt and other warnings and
       caveats about this service.

       kftgtd should be started from inetd and must be run as root or be
       installed setuid root as it needs to be able to read the system srvtab
       file and change its UID to create tickets.  A typical inetd.conf entry
       looks like:

         kftgtd stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/local/sbin/kftgtd

       You will also need the corresponding entry in /etc/services:

         kftgt         2109/tcp        kftgtd  # Kerberos TGT forwarding svc.

       kftgtd times out in 60 seconds if the transaction is not completed.

       kftgtd must be running on a machine that is registered for rlogin
       service; that is, the host must have a srvtab containing an rcmd.<host>
       key where <host> is the value returned by the krb_get_phost(3) Kerberos
       library call.
