Would it be cleaner to just implement the extended security negotiation?
We don't have to do Kerberos. Right?

I have NT4. But none of the servers are configured to perform extended
security. I have a Win2000 machine next to me but I tried to change the
registry setting on it for signing once to no effect. I may not have the
proper rights on it. I have both NT4 and Win2000 at home though. Maybe I
can get it to work there (for a rainy day though).
