- send a principal name to a server
#include <rpc/rpcsec_gss.h> bool_t rpc_gss_set_svc_name(char *principal, char *mechanism, u_int req_time,u_int program, u_int version);
rpc_gss_set_svc_name() sets the name of a principal the server is to represent. If a server is going to act as more than one principal, this procedure can be invoked for every such principal.
Information on RPCSEC_GSS data types for parameters may be found on the rpcsec_gss(3NSL) man page.
An ASCII string representing the server's principal name, given in the form of service@host.
An ASCII string representing the security mechanism in use. Valid strings may be found in the /etc/gss/mech file, or by using rpc_gss_get_mechanisms().
The time, in seconds, for which a credential should be valid. Note that the req_time is a hint to the underlying mechanism. The actual time that the credential will remain valid is mechanism dependent. In the case of kerberos the actual time will be GSS_C_INDEFINITE.
The RPC program number for this service.
The RPC version number for this service.
rpc_gss_set_svc_name() returns TRUE if it is successful; otherwise, use rpc_gss_get_error() to get the error associated with the failure.
