Nope, I like the simple life.

I'm stock 5.5:


Server needs:

GSSAPIAuthentication yes
GSSAPICleanupCredentials yes

Most probably you also want:

AllowGroups blah

Client needs:

GSSAPIAuthentication yes

If you want key forwarding, you also need:

GSSAPIDelegateCredentials yes

Works like a charm, and GSSAPI auth works with putty, delegation doesn't seem
