First, thank you very much for answering so quickly.

That's interesting. I'm going to check out with gss-client.exe and gss-server.exe.
For the moment, I can tell that I can get any ticket I want with the command kinit on windows 98.

I have compiled my client on the pc36 (red hat 6.2). It runs to gss_init_sec_context and raises the same error. Even if Win98 migth have a DNS weakness, the problem here is different. I am still not convinced it is a network issue.

Sorry about those "name_buffer". forget about it.

server_name is a gss_name_t created through the function gss_import_name called with a gss_buffer_t containing "server at pc36.DOMAIN.COM" and with an input_name_type initialized with GSS_C_NT_HOSTBASED_SERVICE.

tocken is a gss_buffer_t initialized with  GSS_C_NO_BUFFER.
