How to login from Fedora/CentOs/RHEL

This section describes how to acquire kerberos tickets and login

Installing Kerberos

For Fedora packages krb5-workstation and openssh-clients are needed. Install these packages with your favorite package manager or by executing as root

yum install krb5-workstation openssh-clients

These packages may already be installed. If there are updates available, we recommend you to update it (yum will ask you for it).

Be aware that the MIT kinit shipped with Fedora differs from the Heimdal kinit and that the MIT kerberos library does not have as many features to break out of firewalls as Heimdal kerberos does.
