Manipulates the server authorization database. The server authorization database determines which nodes are allowed to connect to the tcl server. This command lives in the tclserver itself. Usually a startup script or GUI element projected by the server sets up the appropriate authorization lists.
serverauth is an ensemble of commands that has the following ensemble commands:
hostorip to the set of hosts
that are allowed to connect to this instance of the server.
hostorip can be either a DNS hostname
like spdaq22.nscl.msu.edu or it can
be a dotted IP address like: 22.214.171.124.
Removes the host
hostorip from the set of
systems that are authorized to connect as clients to the tcl server.
hostorip is a DNS name or dotted IP, as for
the serverauth add command. Matching is based on
the IP address so the command should work just fine in the presence of e.g. CNAMEs.
Lists the systems that are authorized to connect. The command returns as a result a Tcl list. Each element of the list is a pair. The first element of the pair is the hostname of a host authorized to connect (actually a hostorip provided). The second element of the list is the IP address of the associated host.
