As already pointed out, Kerberos is a standard and was developed at MIT. When Microsoft adopted it, they (in usual MS fashion) broke the standard in such a way that MS products could only communicate with other MS products. Needless to say this made a lot of people really mad. I believe that later MS fixed their broken implementation but I'm not sure. James Rich Zvpebfbsg vf abg gur nafjre. Zvpebfbsg vf gur dhrfgvba.
