This article explains how to enable cross-network communication with Kerberos on a K2.net™ 2003 Server.

The following steps can be taken to enable Kerberos security on a K2.net™ Server.

Note: These steps must be performed on the K2.net™ Server machine locally – it should not be attempted remotely.
1)  Using K2.net™ Service Manager, right-click on the K2.net™ Server where Kerberos should be enabled and select “Edit K2.net Server Registration Properties...”.
 
 
2)  On the “K2.net Server Registration Properties” window, select “Kerberos” as the Security Package and click “OK”.
 
 
3)  In K2.net™ Service Manager, right-click on the K2.net™ Server where you enabled Kerberos and select “Properties”.
 
 
4)  On the “K2.net Server Properties” window, click on the “K2.net Service Account” tab and specify the user that your K2.net Service should run under (this user should preferably be a member of the “Domain Admins” group in Active Directory. Note that the user account should be entered as <Domain Name>\<User Name>.
 
 
5)  Next, click on the “Add” button to add this instance of the K2.net Server to Active Directory, and then click “OK”.
 
 
6)  If you receive an error stating “Failed to update SPN”, the network administrator should use the “SetSPN.exe” utility as explained in the attached Kerberos Delegation document (provided by Microsoft®) to set a Service Principle Name (SPN) for this account in Active Directory. You should then be able to add this instance of the K2.net Server to Active Directory as explained in step 5.
7)  Restart your K2.net Service via the Services application.
 
 
8)  Reset the Internet Information Services (IIS) Service by opening a command prompt window (Click on Start | Run and type “cmd” in the “Open” textbox).
 
  
 
  On the command prompt, type in “iisreset” followed by Enter – you should see the following result
 
  
 
9)  Kerberos is now enabled on your K2.net™ Server.
