Description

ttsession_file(4)              ToolTalk Commands             ttsession_file(4)



NAME
       ttsession_file - tell ttsession (1) about systemwide defaults.

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/default/ttsession

DESCRIPTION
       The  file /etc/default/ttsession can be used to control the behavior of
       ttsession processes on the machine on which  this  file  resides.  Each
       line  within  the file is of the form VAR = value.  Currently there are
       two values which VAR may be assigned:

              AUTH = <security_options> [, lock=yes|no]
              COMPAT = allow_unauth_types_load = yes|no [, lock=yes|no]

   Format rules
       The format rules for a ttsesssion_file are:

       1. All lines must be command (VAR = value) lines.

       2. Words may be delimited by white space.

       3. A command  line of the form:

          AUTH = <security_options>

       follows the same  format fules which are used in  the  "-a"  option  to
       ttsession(1).

       4. A command  line of the form:

          COMPAT = allow_unauth_types_load = yes|no

       means  to allow("yes") or disallow("no") users to successfully call the
       ToolTalk API function tt_session_types_load(3). The default is "no".

       5. Adding the comma seperated suffix:

              "lock = yes|no"

       to either of the format lines allows ("no") or  disallows  ("yes")  the
       value  to  be  overridden by a given instance of ttsession(1) via argu-
       ments passed to the ttsession process. The default is "no".

EXAMPLES
       This example allows calls to tt_session_types_load(3) systemwide:

              COMPAT = allow_unauth_types_load = yes

       This example sets systemwide security to a specified level, and  disal-
       lows per-session override on this host:

              AUTH  = gss,mechanism=kerberos_v5,qop=GSS_KRB5_CONF_C_QOP_DES, lock = yes
