Exactly what do you mean --with-krb5=base
I am new to this. Find with win2k Kerberos implementation, just not the MIT
version. I have a very large network and want the unix clients to log on
using tickets issued by win2K KDC.
Either way, I installed the MIT 1.2.X version of Kerberos5 on a Linux
machine in the lab. I only passed the arguments of --enable-shared
I thought it had support for KRB5. So back to the original question above.
And what is the base_dir exactly.
God I fell like an absolute idiot. Oh well. (idiot hat on!). Also, do you
have any links (etc) to people who have successfully made this work ? Or any
