If you have not activated the Fileshare Password System, the Fileshare Server validates requests to log on by calling the Fileshare Security Logon validation module (FSSecLog).
The FSSecLog module supplied with Fileshare allows any Fileshare Client to log on to a Fileshare Server. If you need to restrict the Fileshare Clients that can log on to a Fileshare Server, you must provide your own, alternative, FSSecLog module for the Fileshare Server to call.
For example, your own module can enable integration with the native operating system security, if this is needed.
The sequence of steps that your program and Fileshare follow is:
call "fsseclog" using user-ID password return-status
To use your own fsseclog module, create and link it into cobfssecurity.dll and place it on the search path, PATH. Fileshare will notify you that it has loaded the user security modules.
To use your own fsseclog module, create and link it into a cobfssecurity shared object and place it on the search path, LD_LIBRARY_PATH (or LIBPATH on AIX platforms). Fileshare will notify you that it has loaded the user security modules.
