  The computing environment at William James:

  5 Microvax IIs running Mt Xinu 4.3 with NFS
  1 Sun 3/60 running SunOS 4.0
  about 30 PCs on Ethernet, PCnet (gated to Ethernet with tcp/ip drivers)
  or Appletalk (all Appletalked PCs to be moved to Ethernet within 2 months)
  about 15 Macs on Appletalk

  Appletalk connected with a fastpath box to the Ethernet
  
  New uses for Kerberos:
  
  We do printer serving on the Microvaxes for the PCs and Macs.  Since
  we must charge for the printer use the current method of printing
  requires the user to "print" the file on the PC or Mac which transfers the
  file to a subdirectory in the user's Microvax account.  The user must then
  login to the Microvax (establishing their id for billing) then send the
  file to the printer.  We wish to add Kerberos to a version of the printer
  driver in the Mac and into the network drivers on the PC so that the user
  is not required to do the second step.  We also provide for electronic
  mail to and from the PCs. (We ported Berkeley mail to the PC and have it use
  a server on one of the Microvaxs.) The user must currently type in a
  password in order to send or receive mail; Kerberos could be used to make
  this easer.  We have developed software to do remote incremental backups
  of the PCs, this like the email requires that the user enter a password to
  get things started, another logical place for Kerberos.
