Hi Pal,
Thank you very much for the clarificaiton, the secound question is I want to
access the url from my laptop using firefox, and also I configured the
browser as per the IPA installation browers configuration and its download
the ipa certificate, after when I try the same url again its througing the
kerberos auth failure. Please let me know what is the issure.
