authserv.C File Reference

Detailed Description

This macro should be run together with authclient.C to test authentication between two remote ROOT sessions.

Run first the authserv.C within a ROOT session on the server machine, eg. "srv.machi.ne":

     root[] .x authserv.C(3000)

authserv accepts as argument the port where it starts listening (default 3000). You can then run authclient.c in a ROOT session on the client machine:

     root[] .x authclient.C("srv.machi.ne:3000")

and you should get prompted for the credentials, if the case. To start a parallel socket of size, for example, 5, enter the size as second argument, ie

     root[] .x authclient.C("srv.machi.ne:3000",5)
#include "TPServerSocket.h"
int authserv(int po = 3000)
UChar_t oauth = kSrvAuth;
TServerSocket *ss = 0;
TSocket *s = 0;
cout << "authserv: starting a (parallel) server socket on port "
<< po << " with authentication" << endl;
ss = new TPServerSocket(po);
// Get the connection
s = ss->Accept(oauth);
// Print out;
if (s)
if (s->IsAuthenticated())
cout << "authserv: srv auth socket: OK" << endl;
cout << "authserv: srv auth socket: failed" << endl;
// Cleanup
if (s) delete s;
if (ss) delete ss;
