Is something special required for KerbV auth to work? I've enabled:
KerberosAuthentication yes                                         
on some test boxes and it doesn't work. I do a kinit, and then ssh
and it asks for a password. If you don't provide one, you don't get
Also, the config file says that AFS (Andrew File System?) is required
for Kerb Ticket Fwding... I'm not quite clear on why this is, and    
didn't find much in the docs... can anyone shed some light on this,
we'd love to have KerbV ticket forwarding.                         
And yes, we compiled OpenSSH with KerbV support.
