    Hi,

    whenever i open a kerberized session to my ftp server running mac os x server 10.3 and i check the "Encrypt Session" checkbox in fetch's new connection dialog, the session fails with the following logged in the transcript:
    --- transcript start ---
    334 Send authorization data.
    gss_send_tok_buff = ftp@[SNIP]
    ADAT
    235 ADAT=[SNIP]
    USER [SNIP]
    232 User [SNIP] logged in. Authorized by security data exchange
    PBSZ 131072

    200 OK
    PROT P

    504 Unrecognized protection level.
    --- transcript end ---

    Is this meant to be so - i mean is an encrypted session not supported?

    Or should it just work?

    Thanks!

    Apparently the FTP server in OS X server does not support encrypted sessions; a bug report has been filed with Apple.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for confirming this Jim.

    Furthermore, can it be, that using kerberized FTp with fetch doesn't work behind a NAT Router?

    It should work as long as you are using GSS (i.e. Kerberos 5), not KClient, and have your Kerberos configuration set to not check addresses. Also, you should use passive mode transfers (check the box in the Firewall section of Fetch Preferences).

    Thanks,
