Troubleshooting GSSAPI Authentication

When connecting from a Windows 5.x client to a Windows 4.x server using GSSAPI authentication, if authentication fails although GSSAPI has been correctly configured, you may have to disable the LMHOSTS lookup on the client-side computer. Follow these instructions:

  1. Select Control Panel → Network Connections.

  2. In Local Area Connection, right-click and select Properties.

  3. In the Local Area Connection Properties dialog box, General tab, select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click the Properties button.

  4. In the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties dialog box, in the General tab, click the Advanced... button.

  5. In the Advanced TCP/IP Settings dialog box, in the WINS tab, clear the Enable LMHOSTS lookup check box.

  6. Restart the client-side computer.
