configure MIT Kerberos V. I followed the MIT Kerb documentation for
installation, and Administrator and am also referencing the Kerberos
FAQ at

I have a kerberos server daemon running on one machine, now on the
client when I try to execute a kerberized client like ftp, I get the

/etc/krb5.keytab .
