A question that I am sure has been asked 1000+ times:

*** Where can I get public domain source for kerberos? ***

{insert standard reply here and I will be quiet}


Seriously, I cannot run annonymous FTP from my site. Are there
any mail servers that can deliver the goods?

>*** Where can I get public domain source for kerberos? ***

i don't know where you can get *public domain* source for kerberos;
the source we distribute is covered by the MIT Copyright.  we recently
began to distribute tapes which contain these materials; details on
how to obtain source is described below.  it is (obviously) a canned
answer.

REFERENCE:

The Project Athena network services are:

	Kerberos, the authentication service

	Hesiod, the naming service

	Zephyr, the notification service

	Moira, the services management service

All the software shown above is available now by using anonymous FTP
to the host ATHENA-DIST.MIT.EDU (ip#18.71.0.38); cd to the "pub"
directory and look there for subdirectories named after the particular
software components.  When retrieving Kerberos, get the file
pub/kerberos/README before attempting to retrieve the software;
special instructions are required to retrieve the Kerberos software
distribution.

ATHENA-DIST.MIT.EDU is the only software repository which is
guaranteed to have the latest version of the Athena Network Services;
other systems on the Internet may have older copies available.  If
being current is important for your work, then you should get your
software this way.

This software (along with selected applications in daily use at
Project Athena) is also available on magnetic media (both QIC-24 and
9-track tape formats) in UNIX 'tar' format for those users who are not
able to copy the software via anonymous FTP.  Either tape format is
available for US$300 for North American shipment and US$400 elsewhere.
To order send a check drawn on a U.S.  bank payable to "Massachusetts
Institute of Technology" along with a letter providing a shipping
address to:

   MIT Software Center
   Building E32-300
   28 Carleton Street
   Cambridge, MA  02139
   USA
   Telephone: +1 617 253 6966

The MIT Software Center cannot accept purchase orders as payment.  The
MIT Software Center cannot accept the terms and conditions upon the
reverse side of purchase orders.  Please send only a check and a
letter if you must order a tape.

If your tape will be shipped to an address outside the United States of
America, it will contain "Bones," an export version of Kerberos which
has all calls to DES functions removed.  This version of Kerberos is
not useful as an authentication system as-is; you will have to add the
DES calls yourself if you want to use Bones for this purpose.

Questions about Project Athena can be directed by electronic mail on
the Internet to the address < info-athena@ATHENA.MIT.EDU>.  By postal
mail, we can be reached at the following address:

	Information Officer
	MIT Project Athena
	E40-300 MIT
	One Amherst Street
	CAMBRIDGE, MA  02139
	USA

Telephone contact between 1000 and 1600 can be made by dialing +1 617
253 0194; telefax transmissions can be received between 0000 and 2359 
at +1 617 258 8736.
