Configure Kerberos (SFTP Connections)

If you are configuring SFTP connections, you can use Kerberos for authentication.

To configure Kerberos authentication for SFTP sessions

  1. Start the FTP Client.
  2. In the Connect to FTP Site dialog box, select a server. (Use New to create a new site.)
  3. Click Security.
  4. Click the Secure Shell tab and select Use Reflection Secure Shell.
  5. (Optional) Specify an SSH config scheme. (If you leave SSH config scheme blank, Reflection saves any changes you make to an SSH configuration scheme with the same name as the current host.)
  6. Click Configure.
  7. On the General tab, under User Authentication, select GSSAPI/Kerberos.
  8. Click the GSSAPI tab. Use this to specify settings for GSSAPI authentication.

    When SSPI is selected, Reflection uses your Windows domain login credentials to authenticate to the Secure Shell server. Selecting SSPI as your GSSAPI provider configures Reflection to authenticate using Microsoft's Security Support Provider Interface (SSPI).

    When Reflection Kerberos is selected, Reflection uses the Reflection Kerberos client for Kerberos/GSSAPI authentication. Before you can make connections using the Reflection Kerberos client, you must configure Reflection Kerberos on your computer. You can use the Configure button to configure Kerberos if it has not yet been configured on your system, or to modify your existing Kerberos configuration.

Note: Kerberos support is not available with the Reflection FTP Client that ships as part of Reflection NFS Client (full product).
