   I am new to kerberos and trying to set up in a sample scenario as part  
of learning. I have downloaded and installed Kerberos 5 on a Linux system.  
As per the install guide I have successfully configured KDC and  
Application server. in the application server the "ftpd" daemon is also  
started successfully. Now I dont know how to connect a client to the ftpd  

This is the output of klist in client side

klist: You have no tickets cached
Ticket cache: FILE:/tmp/krb5cc_0
Default principal: lloyd/admin at EFS.CYBER
Valid starting     Expires            Service principal
07/15/09 17:09:01  07/16/09 17:08:55  krbtgt/EFS.CYBER at EFS.CYBER

Kerberos 4 ticket cache: /tmp/tkt0

And this is the output when I try ftp command in client side

Connected to ftpserver.efs.cyber.
220 KDC FTP server (Version 5.60) ready.
334 Using authentication type GSSAPI; ADAT must follow
GSSAPI accepted as authentication type
GSSAPI error major: Miscellaneous failure
GSSAPI error minor: No principal in keytab matches desired name
GSSAPI error: acquiring credentials
GSSAPI authentication failed
Kerberos V4 krb_mk_req failed: You have no tickets cached
Login failed.
KERBEROS_V4 accepted as authentication type
Name (ftpserver.efs.cyber:root):

Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.

Am I missing something in Application server, KDC or in client?

Any help is very much appreciated
