Hi Matthew,

  I think you are a bit confused. AD offers a Kerberos and ldap service.
OpenDirecttory or eDirectory is just ldap and has nothing to do with
Kerberos (as far as I know). You can use AD, MIT Kerberos, Heimdal Kerberos
or any other Implementation (e.g. Solaris based) for authentication with

Hi Amos,

Thanks for the reply, you have left me very confused, though. We are talking
about MIT's kerberos, right?


My understanding is that kerberos is a protocol for authentication, and
other directory services (like Mac OS X's OpenDirectory) support it as well
as AD.

Thanks for the link to the wiki, I had a quick look through, and I'll see if
I can get it going with AD as a test. Does anyone know if any other
directory services that implement Kerberos are supported? I'd like to see if
I can get it to work with OpenDirectory or maybe Novell eDirectory.

Thanks for the help!
