More Kerberos-related questions

Well, FWIW, the OSF are looking into releasing the complete DCE
1.2 sources under the LGPL. Some work would be needed to get the
DFS client integrated but I believe it has already been done for
Linux; google for Jim Doyle's work on Linux-DCE.

Doing a CIFS to DFS gateway would be cool, though. I think you
could either have SAMBA forward an addressless ticket to the DFS
server or have the client acquire a ticket for DFS which is 
included in the CIFS AP_REQ. I must confess that although I
understand the concepts I don't really understand the protocols
involved in ticket forwarding and delegation.
