Re: heimdal-0.7.1rc2

Hello Love,

thanks for your answer. But I still have some problems in understanding.

Yes, we are using des3-cbc-sha1 for our principals. Our kdc is still 
running 0.6.3. On my test host OpenSSH is linked against heimdal 0.7. So 
client and server really should use the correct "GSS-API DES3 mic". Or am 
I wrong here?

I also tried "broken_des3_mic" and "correct_des3_mic" in krb5.conf on that 
test host and even on the kdc. Nothing changed. Only the OpenSSH 
error message "GSSAPI MIC check failed" went away when krb5.conf was 
configured like the man page told me. So it seems to have an effect.

Is it better to change the principal key completely (e.g. use another 
encoding)? Which encoding is the prefered nowadays?

Thanks and greetings

PS: I put this answer on the list again as I think others might run into
     the same problems.
