I managed to compile ok but it fails with the Authentication.

I tried linking the gss,krb5 libs in there but didn’t work.


This is how I managed to compile

# cd libgssglue-0.4

# vi src/Makefile


# export LIBS="-lkrb5 -lkrb5support -lgssapi_krb5"

# ./configure

# /usr/local/bin/make

# /usr/local/bin/make install


# cd ../rdesktop-1.8.0

# ./configure –disable-smartcard

# /usr/local/bin/make


I also tried to copy around the /etc/gss/mech file to /etc/mech.conf and /usr/local/etc/gss/mech


# ./rdesktop windows2012server

ERROR: CredSSP: Initialize failed, do you have correct kerberos tgt initialized ?

Failed to connect, CredSSP required by server.


If I do the exact same thing on Linux Mint 15 connecting to the same winserver I get the same error

On the same Linux Mint 15 host I happily connect to the same win2012server with Remmina.

But Remmina is not there for Solaris 10…


This must be a problem with Authentication and rdesktop.
