Hello Cevat,

1. Which format should I use (in SAPLogon - and in the instance *.PFL) 
for the SNC-Name of the SAP-Server I want to connect to?
I saw here a Win2k SAPLogon where you can use 
"p:<user's_win_logon_name>" - and, I already use "Max. available".

2. All values are (as of now) set to 1.
I tried the proposed values, getting the same error output in dev_w0.

3. Which mechanisms are important for Win2k interoperability?
In Kerberos 1.2.8 I saw a Win2k specific user2user mech, a pre-rfc1964 
mech and an rfc1964 compliant one.
I even tried to disable two of them, so there was only the rfc1964 mech 
left. This didn't solve the problem either.

Thanks for your time and suggestions,

Calin Barbat.
