KRB.CONF(5)                 BSD File Formats Manual                KRB.CONF(5)

NAME
     /etc/krb.conf - Kerberos configuration file

DESCRIPTION
     krb.conf contains configuration information describing the Kerberos
     realm(s) and the Kerberos key distribution center (KDC) servers for known
     realms.

     krb.conf starts with a definition of the local realm on the first line,
     this is followed by any number lines defining supplementary local realms.
     The rest of the file consists of lines indicating realm/host entries. The
     first token is a realm name, and the second is a server specification of
     a host running a KDC for that realm. The words "admin server" following
     the hostname indicate that the host also provides an administrative data-
     base server.

     To be able to communicate with the KDC through a firewall it is sometimes
     necessary to tunnel requests over HTTP or TCP. Tunnel protocols and port
     numbers are specified in the server specification using the syntax
     [(UDP|TCP|HTTP)/]hostname[:port].

ENVIRONMENT
     The environment variable KRBCONFDIR can be used to point out the direc-
     tory where the krb.conf file resides.
