Hello everyone,

So far, no one has been able to decipher my SASL problem from my postings
of log files and conf files etc.  I have even cleanly reinstalled my
machines. There is something basic and simple and stupid that I must be
missing.  Can someone please give me a step-by-step walkthrough based on
the following information so I could make doubly sure that I am doing
things properly?

I have a KDC (running MIT KRB) on labrador.kerb.uta.edu.  I have an
OpenLDAP 2.2.7 box running on omicron.kerb.uta.edu. I have a realm
KERB.UTA.EDU.  I have a user dn: uid=digant,cn=people,dc=uta,dc=edu.

An idiot-proof walkthrough would really help and I *KNOW* that's asking a
lot out of people and I wholely apologize for that.  I've done it on my
own and no one can see a problem with the way I did it but it still
doesn't work.  So if someone can give me a step by step on which
principals to create, what entry to create in the LDAP and what to put in
the slapd.conf (and any other important steps), I promise I will buy you
a pizza!


Have you compiled the test server/client that comes with Cyrus-SASL to verify that it authenticates correctly via GSSAPI at that level?
