Use Windows SSPI for GSSAPI Authentication

This procedure configures InfoConnect to use your Windows domain credentials to authenticate to a Secure Shell server.

To configure Windows SSPI for GSSAPI authentication

  1. Open the Reflection Secure Shell Settings dialog box.

  2. From the General tab, under User Authentication, select GSSAPI/Kerberos.

  3. From the GSSAPI tab, select SSPI.

  4. (Optional) Use the Service principal setting to configure connections to hosts that are not in your Windows domain.


  • You must log into a supported Windows domain (Windows 2000 or later).

  • The SSPI setting is supported for Secure Shell protocol version 2 connections only, and the server must support the GSSAPI-with-mic authentication method.
