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

NAME
     krb.extra -- Kerberos misc configuration file

DESCRIPTION
     krb.extra contains a number of settings that are used by the kerberos
     library, or directly by applications. Each line in the file consists of a
     variable, an equal sign, and a value. Lines beginning with hash are
     ignored.

     Currently defined variables are:

     kdc_timeout
          time in seconds to wait for an answer from the KDC (default is 4
          seconds)

     kdc_timesync
          if this is enabled, the time differential between the client and the
          KDC will be stored, and used later on when computing the correct
          time; this is useful if the client's clock is drifting

     firewall_address
          the outside address of the firewall; this is used in some places to
          compute a direction bit, and this might break if the server has a
          different idea about which address to use then the client

     krb4_proxy
          address of a web-proxy to use when connecting to the KDC via HTTP

     krb_default_tkt_root
          the default prefix for ticket files. E.g, if your uid is 42 and the
          prefix is /tmp/tkt then your default ticket file will be /tmp/tkt42

     krb_default_keyfile
          the default keyfile, normally /etc/srvtab

     nat_in_use
          if a Network Address Translator (NAT) is being used.

     egd_socket
          if krb4 has been built with openssl, this specifies the egd socket.

EXAMPLES
     # this is a comment
     krb_default_tkt_root = /tkt/tkt_
     kdc_timesync = yes
     firewall_address = 10.0.0.1
     krb_default_keyfile = /etc/kerberosIV/srvtab
