hpropd – receive a propagated database



hpropd [-d file | -database= file ] [-n | -stdin] [-print] [-i | -no-inetd] [-k keytab | -keytab= keytab ] [-4 | -v4dump]


hpropd receives a database sent by hprop. and writes it as a local database.

By default, hpropd expects to be started from inetd if stdin is a socket and expects to receive the dumped database over stdin otherwise. If the database is sent over the network, it is authenticated and encrypted. Only connections authenticated with the principal kadmin are accepted.

Options supported:
-d file , -database= file
-n -, -stdin
  read from stdin
  print dump to stdout
-i -, -no-inetd
  not started from inetd
-k keytab , -keytab= keytab
  keytab to use for authentication
-4 -, -v4dump
  create v4 type DB

Ken Thompson has an automobile which he helped design. Unlike most automobiles, it has neither speedometer, nor gas gauge, nor any of the other numerous idiot lights which plague the modern driver. Rather, if the driver makes a mistake, a giant “?” lights up in the center of the dashboard. “The experienced driver,” says Thompson, “will usually know what's wrong.”
