I'm resending this because it didn't appear to hit the mailing list
first time round.

Apologies if I'm mistaken and it did.

I'm looking at torque 4.1.2 and trying to work out what the difference
is between MUNGE and trqauthd.

According to the fine documentation here:
http://www.adaptivecomputing.com/resources/docs/torque/4-0/Content/topics/1-installConfig/configuringTrqauthdForClientCom.htm

and here:
http://www.adaptivecomputing.com/resources/docs/torque/4-0/Content/topics/1-installConfig/serverConfig.htm#usingMUNGEAuth

they both seem to have the purpose of confirming the user's identity
to the Torque server, and are exclusive options (according to the
function pbs_original_connect in pbsD_connect.c).

Am I right in thinking this? If so, which one should I be using and why?

Regards
