Hi All,

I am using mod_auth_kerb module on Apache web server to authenitcate user based on the Windows login. 

The token based authentication is not sucessful and am getting "authorization required" message after providing credentials through pop-up three times.
Basically teh issue is with the token povied by IE. It is NTLM instead of kerberos token.

I googled on net and found the the issue is with IE settings.
I followed the *resolutions* mentioned at the following link

i.e enabling IWA through browser.
Adding site to intranet list
Disabling proxies

But still not able to get Kerberos token from IE

Following is the message in Apache log
Warning: received token seems to be NTLM, which isn't supported by the Kerberos module. Check your IE configuration.

Can someone help me resolve the issue?
