Installing Kerberos

In order to access the computers at PDC in a secure way you have to install some variant of Kerberos binaries.

  • Gentoo: Install app-crypt/heimdal and net-misc/openssh

  • FreeBSD: generally comes with Kerberos pre-installed (in ports).

  • Solaris: At NADA/CSC: module add heimdal/latest, otherwise use the ssh shipped with Solaris.

  • Archlinux: Gssapi patch for OpenSSH needed. Either download source code and compile yourself or try this method:

install debtap from AUR //if you are using yaourt use yaourt -S debtap
debtap <package>.deb
sudo pacman -U <package>.pkg

If you need support for a Unix dialect that is missing, please Contact Support for additional information.
