Kereberos on Solaris versions are hre http://hub.opensolaris.org/bin/view/Project+kerberos/WebHome

MIT releasese of Kereberos are here http://web.mit.edu/Kerberos/historical.html and http://web.mit.edu/Kerberos/

Is there a method of displaying the version using the software that is installed.

The Solaris 10 OS 05/08 kerberos package is based on 5-1.4.3.

krb5-config.sh and krb5-config support the --version flag.

On the page http://hub.opensolaris.org/bin/view/Project+kerberos/WebHome it says 5-1.4 and does not give a specific Solaris release. How did you determine that the Solaris 10 05/08 release has 5-1.4.3? How would I determine what kerberos version is in the Solaris 10 10/09 release?

I found it here.
For the 10/09 I would also just google ;-)

I ran the command that was provided:

# /usr/bin/krb5-config --version
Solaris Kerberos (based on MIT Kerberos 5 release 1.4.0)

Btw, I am actually running the Solaris 10 9/10 release. I had the numbers reversed.
