this is sample output from client NOTES.INI

      T:64 E:1: S:64:22 A:4:1 L:N:N:N

      T:64 E:1: S:64:22 A:4:1 L:N:I:N

      T:128 E:1: S:128:22 A:4:1 L:N:N:N

  • Authenticate: CN=CLEVES01/OU=Cleveland/OU=A/O=Acme
    Authenticate: CN=ACCOUNT/OU=Memphis/OU=A/O=Acme
    Authenticate: CN=CLEVES02/OU=Cleveland/OU=A/O=Acme
