Re: Heimdal / MS kpasswd differences?

Port 464 is rfc3244 which is what wireshark displayed as ms kpasswd

I am intrigued by the other trace however that was also port 464 but
was not decoded at all.
Can you share that trace with me so i can see if this is a bug in wireshark?

As far as windows clients themself are concerned,  it is very very
rare that they use this protocol to set/change passwords, most of the
time they use sealed dcerpc interfaces instead.
