    A Kerberos realm in UNIX is analogous to a Kerberos domain, as in an Active
    Directory domain, correct? Just asking b/c some appliance/firewall devices
    talk about Kerberos Realm name. In lieu of anything else I guess I put my
    AD domain name there? These devices need something to authenticate against
    so if I put my AD domain name in the spot where it says Kerberos realm I
    would be correct? This is a philosophical question, I have no particular
    piece of hardware in mind. Or maybe I just need to get my terms cleaned up?
    :)
