    Hi. I hope someone can help me.

    I'm trying to make openssh 3.9 support ticket/token forwarding for a
    single sign on: passwordless ssh sessions. I use pam_krb5 for kerberos
    authentication and pam_openafs_session for running aklog, and this is my
    system-auth pam file (used by all services):

    auth required /lib/security/
    auth sufficient /lib/security/ nodelay nullok
    auth sufficient /lib/security/ forwardable
    auth required /lib/security/

    account required /lib/security/

    password required /lib/security/ retry=3
    password sufficient /lib/security/ nullok md5 shadow
    password required /lib/security/

    session required /lib/security/
    session optional /lib/security/
    session optional /lib/security/
    session required /lib/security/

    Now, I have this problem: the passwordless ssh seems to be really
    broken, since it seems it does *not* forward the kerberos 5 tickets. So,
    every time, I have to enter a password.

    It seems that ssh does not support kerberos and SSO... Please help me!

    PS. I tried Kerberos*, GSSAPI*, UsePAM but *NOTHING* works...
