       sasl-sample-client  —  Sample  client  program  for  demonstrating  and
       testing SASL authentication.


       sasl-sample-client [-b min=N,max=N]  [-e ssf=N,id=ID]  [-m  MECH]   [-f
       FLAGS]   [-i  local=IP,remote=IP]  [-p PATH]  [-s NAME]  [-n FQDN]  [-u
       ID]  [-a ID]


       This manual page documents briefly the sasl-sample-client command.

       This manual page was written for the Debian  distribution  because  the
       original program does not have a manual page.

       authentication. It implements the client part, and the server  part  is
