| Thanks Jerry. Is there a specific level of

| Kerberos but I don't know which one and from what
| vendor. Seems I read somewhere that it is a subset of

| answer that question.

For MIT either the latest 1.3.x or 1.4.x release should
be ok.  the 1.2.x releases will work but only with DES

You need the OpenLDAP 2.x client libs only.  Not an
actually OpenLDAP slapd installation.

cheers, jerry
