svcgssd


SYNOPSIS
       rpc.svcgssd [-n] [-v] [-r] [-i] [-f] [-p principal]

DESCRIPTION
       The  rpcsec_gss  protocol  gives  a  means of using the gss-api generic
       security api to provide security for protocols using rpc  (in  particu-
       lar,  nfs).   Before  exchanging any rpc requests using rpcsec_gss, the
       rpc client must first establish a security context with the rpc server.
       The   linux  kernel's  implementation  of  rpcsec_gss  depends  on  the
       userspace daemon rpc.svcgssd to handle context establishment on the rpc
       server.   The  daemon  uses files in the proc filesystem to communicate
       with the kernel.


OPTIONS
       -f     Runs rpc.svcgssd in the foreground and sends  output  to  stderr
              (as opposed to syslogd)

       -v     Increases the verbosity of the output (can be specified multiple
              times).

       -r     If  the  rpcsec_gss  library  supports  setting   debug   level,
              increases the verbosity of the output (can be specified multiple
              times).

       -i     If the nfsidmap library supports setting debug level,  increases
              the verbosity of the output (can be specified multiple times).

       -p     Use principal instead of the default nfs/FQDN@REALM.

       -n     Use the system default credentials (host/FQDN@REALM) rather than
              the default nfs/FQDN@REALM.
