* Sample Programs for Gradient's PC-DCE
In addition to the Greet and Grade samples included with PC-DCE for NT/95, there are also additional versions using the Windows MFC classes.
The basic Grade sample is a STDIO-based security sample, demonstrating DCE use of pthreads, CDS naming, and authenticated RPC. An extended version offers some additional dialog features: The server program displays the pricipal name of the most recent caller, as well as the security level that the caller is using, The client program allows the user to choose the security level, and other options including credential refresh, check for available server status, CDS cache bypass, and principal and cell information. Additionally the client program prompt the user to login to DCE if it detects there are no valid DCE credentials.
The Authen sample demonstrates how to use several of the common security API's to perform the equivilent of dce login for the process, an account password change, and how to refresh a logins' credentials.
