Thanks Ivan, maybe I'll learn something by remotedly attending your GGF
tutorial, or reading whatever docs will evolve from that.
Til then, I got to thinking about my grid certs and wondering if they are
somehow invalid for doing all this AGTk stuff. My certs are probably 2 years
old now, here's my ID:
% grid-proxy-init -debug
Files being used:
cert_dir : /etc/grid-security/certificates
proxy : /tmp/x509up_u23470
user_key : /home/heiland/.globus/userkey.pem
Your identity: /C=US/O=National Computational Science Alliance/CN=Randy Heiland
Enter GRID pass phrase for this identity:
Is there something unique about AGTk certs vs. Globus certs from ~2 yrs ago?
fyi - I download all the AGTk s/w to my home WinXP system last night, ftp'd
over my certs, but got to the same stopping point as already reported.
I'm going off to read some AGTk security-related code now... :)
