2    External software required (on both client and server hosts)
3
4     * GSI (Grid Security Infrastructure) from the Globus 2 Toolkit (2.0
5       or 2.2)
6
7   Refer to the Working with external software section.

9    System requirements
10
11     * The certificate mode has been tested for Linux intel and Solaris
12       only
13
14    Certificates
15
16   2 certificates needed:
17     * A host certificate or a user certificate on the BBFTP server host.
18     * A user certificate on the BBFTP client host.
19
20    Build process
21
22   For both client and server, use the
23   --enable-authentication=certificates option for the configure script.
24   See the installation sections for the client and for the server.
25
26    Running the BBFTPD daemon
27
28   Before starting the daemon, some environment variables can be set to
29   override default values for certificates paths, mapfile location... If
30   you use the --with-x509... options of the configure script, these
31   variables will be automatically set.
32   Refer to the Globus documentation for more details.
33
34   Run the daemon "bbftpd -b"
35
36   If you use a host certificate, you must be root to start the daemon.
37   The CN field of the certificate must be the full name of the host
38   (i.e. host.domain). If it is something else (for example a service
39   name), it must be specified by the client with the -g option.
40   If you want to start your own daemon, you must use another certificate
41   (a host certificate you can read or your own certificate). In this
42   case, only you can use the bbftp client against this server, and you
43   will have to use the -g option (see BBFTP Client man page).
44
45    Running the client
46
47   Before running the client, you must create a temporary proxy using the
48   grid-proxy-init command.
49
50   Run the client "bbftp -e<command_list>|-i<control_file> <remote_host>"
51   Please, note that the -u option is not used in the certificate
52   authentication mode. If you use it, BBFTP will use the standard
53   authentication mode.
