No password is required for the broadcasting. You only need to be
root. I'm going to try to guess your problem. You downloaded and
compiled fl_tt but did not run #make install. Hence, the
HOST_INFO_FILE is not copied to the correct place. Try running #make
install and see if that solves the problem. BTW if you install fl_tt
with yum, HOST_INFO_FILE gets copied to /etc/fl_teachertool/. If you
install from my source tarball HOST_INFO_FILE gets copied to
Let me know if this solves the problem.
