interoperability Win2k/Linux

Hi Derek,

Yes, the problem is true of:

1) Exchange 2000
2) The Remote Installation Service
3) Macintosh File and Print Services that come with Win2k
4) ActiveSync (all versions known to me)
5) The ftp service that is part of IIS
6) telnetd

If you find others to add to the list, please let me know.

I have had many discussions with MS about the 1st three items. I expect to
have further discussions with them about items 1 and 2 in the next couple of
weeks. As far as I know MS has not committed to adding Kerberos support to
the next version of Exchange/Outlook either.

Is this true with Exchange 2000? It integrates with the AD and I would think
that it would use krb but this is microsoft.
