[OpenAFS] Problem configuring OpenAFS
Tue, 06 Dec 2005 00:16:05 +0100
I recently sent a request to the bug report mail address for open AFS whose main
message was as follows:
"I have firewall and things from ZoneAlarm, so maybe that's
got something to do with it, or maybe not - I don't know. I've sent a similar
mail to their support.
I have downloaded the latest release of AFS Client for Windows 2000. I am unable
to configure it.
I want to access the cell md.kth.se to which I belong. When I try starting the
client I get the error
"The AFS Client Service could not be started successfully. You might not have
authorization to perform this operation.
I got the following reply:

I do have administrator rights to my machine. I also received a reply from the
people suggesting I disable my ZoneAlarm and try then. I did, and it didn't
Can YOU please lead my steps toward a solution?
