       sfsauthd - SFS authentication daemon


       /usr/local/lib/sfs-0.8pre/sfsauthd [-u sockfile] [-f config-file]


       sfsauthd is the program responsible for authenticating users.  sfsrwsd
       and other daemons communicate with sfsauthd, forwarding it
       authentication requests from sfsagent processes on remote client
       machines.  sfsauthd informs requesting daemons of whether
       authentication requests are valid, and if so what local credentials to
       associate with the remote user agent.  The sfskey program also
       communicates directly with remote sfsauthd processes when retrieving
       and updating users keys (with sfskey add, update, register, and more).


       -f config-file
           Specify an alternate sfssauthd_config configuration file.  The
           default, if -f is unspecified, is /etc/sfs/sfsauthd_config.

       -u path
           Bind unix domain socket path, and accept TCP connections passed
           over connections to that socket.  This option allows sfssd to
           communicate with already running sfsauthd commands using a
           directive like Service 2 -u path in sfssd_config .
