Jaguar's standard command-line Telnet client is Kerberized! I was having trouble connecting to the U of I's registration server from Samson, so I wondered if the server was down and tried to connect directly, expecting a message telling me that my connection was insecure. Instead I got “[ Kerberos V5 accepts you as ``njriley\@UIUC,EDU'' ]“. What a pleasant surprise! I didn't see this documented anywhere. I hope this means it'll be easier to get SSH compiled with GSSAPI support than it was in 10.1.
