Windows 7: How do I integrate Kerberos with Windows Explorer?

How do I integrate Kerberos with Windows Explorer?


I have a Windows 7 Home Premium x64 installation (i.e. one that does not attach to a domain) that needs to talk to a Samba share in a Kerberized (not AD) environment.

I have setup "Kerberos for Windows 4.0.1" and "Network Identity Manager" and they are successfully able to obtain a Kerberos ticket from the KDC used by the Samba share.

How do I now get Windows Explorer to use that ticket when accessing the share?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

After consulting with some network admin friends, the only way we see that working properly is to upgrade to win 7 pro and adding the system to the domain. LDAP/Kerberos is a tricky beast

Lol, only in M$ world. I have a secure LDAP/Kerberos setup and every single Linux, Android, OSx and iOS device has had no problems authenticating and browsing the secured services.

Only Windows has had any issues. I've discovered a number of Group Policy and Registry settings that you can modify to get Windows 7 to talk to a Samba share, but none of them have worked in my case.

Thanks anyway,
