:> Solaris 8 has Kerberos 5. Be warned that the default Windows 2000

: Is there a way to use Solaris 2.7 to use Kerberos v5?
Yes, I have been using MIT Kerberos 5 with both Solaris 2.6
and 2.7 for a long time. The source code build flawless on
both versions with the GCC compiler. (http://gcc.gnu.org)
Sun Workshop compiler with trial licence also works perfect.
How to get it:
Go to http://ftpsearch.ntnu.no and type 'krb5-1.1.1.*.tar.gz' in the
search field and hit enter. The distribution is splitted up
in tree parts, one containing the base and one containing
the crypto parts and one for the documentation.
