KPROPD(8)               OpenBSD System Manager's Manual              KPROPD(8)

     kpropd - network utility for Kerberos database propagation

     kpropd [-r realm] [-s srvtab] [-d database_file] [-l logfile]
     [-p kdb_util_path] output_file

     This daemon runs on a Kerberos slave and waits to receive the Kerberos
     database propagated from a kprop process on a Kerberos master.  The first
     parameter, output_file, that you must supply to the daemon is the name of
     a text file in which data will be placed when it comes over the network.

     This utility executes the kdb_util utility, which loads the database from
     the file specified in output_file, puts it in db(3) format, and copies it
     into the Kerberos database in the directory /etc/kerberosIV.


     -r          Specifies the reciever realm for which data is accepted;
                 /etc/kerberosIV/krb.conf specifies the default.

     -s          Specifies the service table file from which to read the pass-
                 word of the daemon, because a password cannot be entered man-
                 ually when running as a daemon.  The default is:

     -d          Specifies the primary Kerberos database file of a Kerberos
                 slave.  This file receives a new or updated database propa-
                 gated from the Kerberos master.  The default is the database

     -i          Run stand-alone.  If this flag is not given, it is assumed to
                 have been started by inetd.

     -l          Specifies the name of the log file to be used.  The default
                 is: /var/log/kpropd.log.

     -p          Specificies the full path (with directory and command) to the
                 program kdb_util. The default is just: kdb_util which relies
                 on the PATH environment variable to be searched to find it.

     -P          Synonym for -p.

     This utility does not support the transfer of encrypted data.

     If the -P or -p options are not specified and the PATH environment vari-
     able does not contain the directory with kdb_util, this program will
