Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2001:025 normal SHIPPED_LIVE : Updated Kerberos 5 and pam_krb5 packages available 2001-03-08 05:00:00 UTC

Description Stephen Tweedie 2000-05-22 21:39:56 UTC
The krb5-1.1.1-16 errata upgrade breaks "rsh -f"'s credential
forwarding.  The fault is on the server side: an upgraded client
(also running the upgraded KDC) can still correctly connect to
an unupgraded host via rsh -f, with ticket forwarding working OK.

Forwarding in general still works: telnet -f succeeds.  Only
the kerberised rsh (with or without "-x" session encryption)

This is rather high priority, as single-signon is the whole
point of kerberos, and that functionality breaks over more than
one hop in the upgraded packages.

Fixed in rsh, still hunting for it in rlogin.

Comment 3 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-09-12 18:29:38 UTC
This should be fixed in krb5-1.1.1-25 and krb5-1.2.1-9 and later.  Until Raw
Hide gets refreshed, new packages can be grabbed from
