Re: Remote client IP for plain & login methods

I, for one, do not understand the feature you are proposing.  Addressless tickets are now the norm for Kerberos and AFAIK the address wasn't used by the GSSAPI mechanism anyway.

If not, I am currently going to modify the code to mimic kerberos' implementation within plain & login. Would this group be interested in including this feature into future releases if I provide a patch to the listserve?
