<h2>SYNOPSIS<a class="headerlink" href="#synopsis" title="Permalink to this headline"></a></h2>

<h2>DESCRIPTION<a class="headerlink" href="#description" title="Permalink to this headline"></a></h2>
<p>sserver and <a class="reference internal" href="../../user/user_commands/sclient.html#sclient-1"><em>sclient</em></a> are a simple demonstration client/server
application.  When sclient connects to sserver, it performs a Kerberos
authentication, and then sserver returns to sclient the Kerberos
principal which was used for the Kerberos authentication.  It makes a
good test that Kerberos has been successfully installed on a machine.</p>
<p>The service name used by sserver and sclient is sample.  Hence,
sserver will require that there be a keytab entry for the service
<tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">sample/hostname.domain.name&#64;REALM.NAME</span></tt>.  This keytab is generated
using the <a class="reference internal" href="kadmin_local.html#kadmin-1"><em>kadmin</em></a> program.  The keytab file is usually
installed as <a class="reference internal" href="../../mitK5defaults.html#paths"><em>DEFKTNAME</em></a>.</p>
<p>The <strong>-S</strong> option allows for a different keytab than the default.</p>
<p>sserver is normally invoked out of inetd(8), using a line in
<tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">/etc/inetd.conf</span></tt> that looks like this:</p>
<div class="highlight-python"><div class="highlight"><pre>sample stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/sbin/sserver sserver
</pre></div>
</div>
<p>Since <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">sample</span></tt> is normally not a port defined in <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">/etc/services</span></tt>,
you will usually have to add a line to <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">/etc/services</span></tt> which looks
like this:</p>
<div class="highlight-python"><div class="highlight"><pre>sample          13135/tcp
</pre></div>
</div>
<p>When using sclient, you will first have to have an entry in the
Kerberos database, by using <a class="reference internal" href="kadmin_local.html#kadmin-1"><em>kadmin</em></a>, and then you have to get
Kerberos tickets, by using <a class="reference internal" href="../../user/user_commands/kinit.html#kinit-1"><em>kinit</em></a>.  Also, if you are running
the sclient program on a different host than the sserver it will be
connecting to, be sure that both hosts have an entry in /etc/services
for the sample tcp port, and that the same port number is in both
files.</p>
<p>When you run sclient you should see something like this:</p>
<div class="highlight-python"><div class="highlight"><pre>sendauth succeeded, reply is:
reply len 32, contents:
You are nlgilman@JIMI.MIT.EDU
</pre></div>
</div>
</div>
<div class="section" id="common-error-messages">
<h2>COMMON ERROR MESSAGES<a class="headerlink" href="#common-error-messages" title="Permalink to this headline"></a></h2>
<ol class="arabic">
<li><p class="first">kinit returns the error:</p>
<div class="highlight-python"><div class="highlight"><pre>kinit: Client not found in Kerberos database while getting
       initial credentials
</pre></div>
</div>
<p>This means that you didn&#8217;t create an entry for your username in the
Kerberos database.</p>
</li>
<li><p class="first">sclient returns the error:</p>
<div class="highlight-python"><div class="highlight"><pre>unknown service sample/tcp; check /etc/services
</pre></div>
</div>
<p>This means that you don&#8217;t have an entry in /etc/services for the
sample tcp port.</p>
</li>
<li><p class="first">sclient returns the error:</p>
<div class="highlight-python"><div class="highlight"><pre>connect: Connection refused
</pre></div>
</div>
<p>This probably means you didn&#8217;t edit /etc/inetd.conf correctly, or
you didn&#8217;t restart inetd after editing inetd.conf.</p>
</li>
<li><p class="first">sclient returns the error:</p>
<div class="highlight-python"><div class="highlight"><pre>sclient: Server not found in Kerberos database while using
         sendauth
</pre></div>
</div>
<p>This means that the <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">sample/hostname&#64;LOCAL.REALM</span></tt> service was not
defined in the Kerberos database; it should be created using
<a class="reference internal" href="kadmin_local.html#kadmin-1"><em>kadmin</em></a>, and a keytab file needs to be generated to make
the key for that service principal available for sclient.</p>
</li>
<li><p class="first">sclient returns the error:</p>
<div class="highlight-python"><div class="highlight"><pre>sendauth rejected, error reply is:
    &quot;No such file or directory&quot;
</pre></div>
</div>
<p>This probably means sserver couldn&#8217;t find the keytab file.  It was
probably not installed in the proper directory.</p>
