My apologies, I am sure this has been discussed before, but in a web
search I was unable to find a lead.
We are running a *safe Kerberos V5 server. I am trying to prepare
a client library for creating kerberized clients on arbitrary machines.
I have downloaded and successfully built the MIT Athean Kerberos V.5
distribution. However, kinit will not work against the *safe server
- I receive a password incorrect message. I know the *safe server
is working because I have a Kerberos V.4 client which is interoperating
with the *safe server successfully (with the same principal and
Looking over the documentation, it appears the MIT Kerberos only
supports des-cbc-crc encryption. Looking over the RFCs it appears that
the standard requires des-cbc-md5 as the default encryption.
1) is the difficulty the use of des-cbc-crc encryption by MIT
2) if not, any leads on what the difficulty might be?
3) any solution?
Thanks in advance, appreciate any hint anyone can give!
