Subject: ABS client library
I have placed source code for a kerberos 5 version of the
ABS client libraries at
The main change is the AO_Connect() and ABS_Connect() routines
attempt to use a keytab or Kerberos 5 ticket. To convert an
existing srvtab to a keytab
ktutil: rst SRVTAB-FILE
ktutil: wkt KEYTAB-FILE
If there is no keytab specified to the routine (such as might
be the case when using the newabs_test program), the *_Connect()
routines will try looking for a Kerberos 5 ticket.
The ABS test server is tune.abs.itd.umich.edu. A sample ABS.CONF
file using tune as the server would contain
UMICH.EDU TUNE.ABS.ITD.UMICH.EDU abs development server
The build procedure uses `configure' and supports building shared
libraries of ABS and AS. MIT Kerberos 5 and OpenAFS distributions
are required when building. You may specify their locations via
--with-krb5=KRB5-LOCATION and --with-afs=AFS-LOCATION.
I've successfully built and tested this on Solaris 2.8 and UMCE Linux.
Please let me know if you encounter any issues or have questions.
