Cornell uses internally a ddl/extention (etc) called Kclient along with
a program called sidecar that allows our windows and mac clients to do
kerberos authentication even if the client program does not support kerberos.
Kclient supposedly now syncs the clocks to the campus time server

I'm working (slowly) on encorporating server side support for this
into nnrpd
