NAME

       mupdatetest - interactive MUPDATE test program


SYNOPSIS

       mupdatetest [ -p port ] [ -m mechanism ]
                   [ -a userid ] [ -u userid ] [ -k num ] [ -l num ]
                   [ -r realm ] [ -f file ] [ -n num ] [ -c ]
                   [ -i ] [ -o option=value ] [ -v ] hostname


DESCRIPTION

       mupdatetest  is  a utility that allows you to authenticate to a MUPDATE
       server and interactively issue commands to it. Once  authenticated  you
       may  issue any MUPDATE command by simply typing it in. It is capable of
       multiple SASL authentication mechanisms and handles  encryption  layers
       transparently.  This utility is often used for testing the operation of
       a mupdate server. Note that you must be an admin in order to  authenti-
       cate to an mupdate server.



OPTIONS

       -p port
              Port  to  connect  to.  If  left off this defaults to mupdate as
              defined in /etc/services.

       -m mechanism
              Force mupdatetest to use mechanism for  authentication.  If  not
              specified  the  strongest  authentication mechanism supported by
              the server is chosen.

       -a userid
              Userid to use for authentication; defaults to the current  user.
              This  is  the  userid whose password or credentials will be pre-
              sented to the server for verification.

       -u userid
              Userid to use for authorization; defaults to the  current  user.
              This  is the userid whose identity will be assumed after authen-
              tication.  NOTE: This is only used  with  SASL  mechanisms  that
              allow proxying (e.g. PLAIN, DIGEST-MD5).

       -k num Minimum protection layer required.

       -l num Maximum protection layer to use (0=none; 1=integrity; etc).  For
              example if you are using the KERBEROS_V4  authentication  mecha-
              nism  specifying  0  will force mupdatetest to not use any layer
              and specifying 1 will force it to use the integrity  layer.   By
              default the maximum supported protection layer will be used.

       -r realm
              Specify  the  realm  to  use.  Certain authentication mechanisms
              (e.g. DIGEST-MD5) may require one to specify the realm.

       -f file
              Pipe file into connection after authentication.

       -n num Number of authentication attempts; default = 1.  The client will
              attempt to fast reauth (e.g. DIGEST-MD5), if possible.

       -c     Enable  challenge  prompt  callbacks.   This  will cause the OTP
              mechanism to ask for the the one-time password  instead  of  the
              secret pass-phrase (library generates the correct response).

       -i     Don't  send an initial client response for SASL mechanisms, even
              if the protocol supports it.

       -o option=value
              Set the SASL option to value.

       -v     Verbose. Print out more information than usual.
