Re: Kerberos Authentication

Hello bblanchard,

I get the same error in my lab if I point the MEG to an IP address that does not exist.  I would check to make sure the IP you entered for the Kerberos server is correct.  Beyond that, make sure you are using the correct port for communication and that the port is open on any firewall between MEG and the Kerberos server.  Hope this helps.
