Library for Kerberos-authenticated command execution
remctl is a client/server protocol for executing specific commands on a
remote system with Kerberos authentication. The allowable commands must
be listed in a server configuration file, and the executable run on the
server may be mapped to any command name. Each command is also
associated with an ACL containing a list of Kerberos principals
authorized to run that command.
This package contains the client libraries linked against MIT Kerberos.

The remctl client (command-line or library) will attempt to connect to
4373 by default and fall back to 4444 if that fail

which the user would have been
