Information on the Kerberos Settings for PASS and UDrive Access

What it is

This file, available at https://downloads.its.psu.edu/ under the "File Transfer" section, contains server information that is needed so your computer knows which servers to contact for Kerberos keys accepted by the PASS servers. Without this file, you can not get all the needed tickets to properly access your folders on PASS.
