Name        : remctl
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 3.3
Release     : 1.fc18
URL         : http://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/software/remctl
Summary     : Client/server for Kerberos-authenticated command execution
Description :

remctl (the client) and remctld (the server) implement a client/server
protocol for running single commands on a remote host using Kerberos
v5 authentication and returning the output. They use a very simple
GSS-API-authenticated network protocol, combined with server-side ACL
support and a server configuration file that maps remctl commands to
programs that should be run when that command is called by an
authorised user.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

New upstream release. Fixes a file descriptor leak when checking ACL files. This would cause long-running remctld processes to eventually run out of available file descriptors.

Full upstream changelog is available at http://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/software/remctl/news.html

Add PHP, Python, and Ruby bindings
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update remctl' at the command line.
