send_to_kdc error in Kfw 3.0

      I have been getting error 57 when I call send_to_kdc (function 
defined send_kdc.c in kfw 3.0) on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard 
Edition , however this function works fine on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 
Standard Edition.

I repeated the test with kfw 2.0 and send_to _kdc works fine on both 
versions of the OS.

After some more digging I found that the error occurs in the rgethostbyname 
function (defined in gethna.c).  For some reason rgethostbyname in kfw 3.0 
on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard Edition  returns a NULL 
resulting in error 57 from send_to_kdc. I am suspecting this is the case 
with kfw 2.5 & higher.

I was wondering if anyone else had a similar problem.

Thank you for your time.
