Hi there,

a few days ago, I succeeded in running a SSPI/GSS-API client/server 
program between an XP workstation and a Solaris server. The server's 
keytab was generated using Windows 'ktpass' tool.

I generated another keytab file using the same tool (with the same 
parameters) and installed that keytab file on the server.

Now, the server claims it cannot accept the token :
gss_accept_sec_context: Invalid credential was supplied
gss_accept_sec_context: Key version number for principal in key table is 

I tried to generate another keytab file using the -kvno 1 option but to 
no avail.

What did I miss ?
