Mac OS X Server v10.6: Authentication methods for Podcast Producer

Learn about authentication methods for Podcast Producer in Mac OS X Server v10.6.

The Podcast Producer service can support different methods of authentication depending on the version of Mac OS X Server. This article explains how to enable or disable specific authentication methods in different versions of Mac OS X Server v10.6.

For information about Podcast Producer authentication methods in Mac OS X Server v10.5, see this article.

Podcast Producer can support any combination of basic, digest, and Kerberos authentication. These settings are stored in the file (Podcast Library)/Server/cluster_preferences.plist, where (Podcast Library) is the shared file system shown as the Podcast Library in Server Admin.

You must have root access to view or edit this file.

By default, all are enabled, and the plist file contains this entry:

<key>http_auth_type</key>

<array>

<string>basic</string>

<string>digest</string>

<string>kerberos</string>

</array>

Then stop and restart the Podcast service either in Server Admin or by using this command:

pcastctl server restart
