Client Programs

The Kerberized client programs are login.krb5, rlogin, telnet, ftp, rcp, rsh, kinit, klist, kdestroy, kpasswd, ksu, and krb524init. All of these programs are in the directory /usr/local/bin, except for login.krb5 which is in /usr/local/sbin.

You will probably want to have your users put /usr/local/bin ahead of /bin and /usr/bin in their paths, so they will by default get the Kerberos V5 versions of rlogin, telnet, ftp, rcp, and rsh. MIT recommends that you use login.krb5 in place of /bin/login to give your users a single-sign-on system. You will need to make sure your users know to use their Kerberos passwords when they log in.

You will also need to educate your users to use the ticket management programs kinit, klist, kdestroy, and to use the Kerberos programs ksu, and kpasswd in place of their non-Kerberos counterparts su, passwd, and rdist.
