Description Pavel Tsekov 2002-10-23 09:07:14 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
gserver_authenticate_connection () in server.c uses a char buffer with a fixed
size of 1024 bytes to get the response from a KDC. It seems that this buffer is
not enough when the KDC is a Windows2000 Server with ActiveDirectory, maybe even
with other Kerberos implementations

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run a GSSAPI authentication capable CVS server
2.Try some cvs command for example: cvs -d :gserver:host:cvsroot log somefile.c

Actual Results:  Assertion is printed on the client side.

Expected Results:  The cvs command should complete successfully.

Additional info:

CVS used is the one that comes with RedHat Linux 8.0 - cvs-1.11.2-5
