              Accept a security context as server.  If MECH is not specified, no credentials will

       -i, --init-sec-context=MECH
              Initialize a security context as client.  MECH is the SASL name of  mechanism,  use

              For   -i   and   -a,   set   the   name   of   the   remote   host.   For  example,
