I'm using a BSDI machine as my mail server.  I have an old version of qpopper the works but not well.  I need to upgrade to qpopper 2.3.  The quppoer will verify with local passwords but will not verify from kerberos.  From all indications it looks like I'll have to rebuild the pop_pass.c to meet my needs but before I do so I'd like to see if someone else has done is again...   No use reinventing the wheel.

If you know anything about this isssue I'd appreciate it.  Or if my logic isn't correct please let me know.

For 50 pints, well
you have to add in the code of pop_pass.c an afs authentification
scheem, i am suposing that the server of qpoper is a afs client or server then you just have to interface the folowing code with
the pop_pass.c whic i supose is shere authentification is going on, modify the next example.

*** these are some includes needed.

#include <afs/param.h>
#include <afs/kautils.h>

 
int  code;

struct Information {
        char acount[128];
        char passwd[128];
};

*** This funcion recives name nad passwd and returns a 0 if
*** failed or a 1 if succeded.

int *autenticate(Datos)
Informacion *Datos;
{
  long password_expires = -1;
  char *reason;

  code = ka_UserAuthenticateGeneral(KA_USERAUTH_VERSION+KA_USERAUTH_DOSETPAG,
                                    Datos->acount,
                                    (char *) 0,  /* instance */
                                    (char *) 0,  /* cell */
                                    Datos->passwd,
                                    0,           /* lifetime, default */
                                    &password_expires, /*days 'til it expires*/
                                    0,        /* spare 2 */
                                    &reason);
  return (&code);
}

I can care less about the points....  I just need an answer.

We are not using afs here.  We are simply using kerberos authentication.  The popper that I am trying to configure is called qpopper2.3.  It is located ftp://ftp.qualcomm.com/Eudora/servers/unix/popper/ if you wish to see what I'm using.  The version of kerberos I'm using is IV.

If you help me work this issue out, you can pretty much bet we'll be using you in the future :>
