    3131 * I cannot log in to [ Brightmail]: “Invalid user name or password. Please try again.” 
    3232 * I cannot log in to Windows after starting the Citrix ICA Client from [ Citrix MetaFrame XP]: “The system could not log you on.  Make sure your User name and domain are correct, then type your password again.  Letters in passwords must be typed using the correct case.” 
     33 * I cannot log in to the MIT SECURE wireless network: 
     35NetworkManager[1083]: <info> (eth1): supplicant connection state:  associating -> associated 
     36wpa_supplicant[1185]: CTRL-EVENT-EAP-METHOD EAP vendor 0 method 25 (PEAP) selected

     43== Solution == 
     45In at least [comment:8 one case] (, the problem was that the server’s `/etc/krb5.conf` had the line `default_tkt_enctypes = des-cbc-crc`.  This line [comment:9 should be removed].  Since we think this misconfigured `/etc/krb5.conf` has been copied to many MIT servers, that’s probably all we need to do to fix most or all of these problems.
