Hi All,

I currently have OpenAFS 1.4.1-rc6 Windows clients using Kerberos
authentication.  The problem I'm having is that we unfortunately use
Quickbooks.  I know byte-range locking on Windows clients is still
somewhat up in the air, so I can't reliably store the data files on the

The catch-22 is that since I'm using Kerberos for authentication, I
can't get peer to peer sharing working because Windows is looking for a
domain controller (I think), and can't find one.  I know this isn't
really an OpenAFS question, but I'm hoping that someone else out there
will have a similar setup with a suggestion on how I can share these
Quickbooks files.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
