We have Windows2k machines connected and authenticated with Samba.  We also 
have MIT kerberos for Linux systems.

What we want to do is using samba as a gateway, clients using Windows2k 
machines can access their AFS file space. 

We are trying to encrypt the usernames and passwords and send to samba side 
which then decrypt and retrieve the plain-text password. Does Samba have 
functionalites to get the AFS tickets and tokens? Any patches on Samba 

Or is there any "standard" or better way to work with this problem? PAM?

I've been looking for some detail descriptions of the following options. Are 
these options relevant to my situation?


Any help appreicated.
