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
