Testing using WinInet & Socket Option

Hi All,

Kerberos authentication is implemented in Application as a part of Development. This causes issue in running the Vugen script using Socket option. To overcome this issue, we used WinInet option and enable the "Integrated User Authentication" and not seeing any issue while running the script.

Is there any alternative way/approach of testing using socket option by implementing Keberos as a part of web_set_certificate or can we write c code to have the windows authentication using Kerberos Key rather than using WinInet.

WinInet is showing a slow reponse time result from the test run as compared to Socket option testing,

Re: Testing using WinInet & Socket Option

I think there is slight confusion:

a. "enable integrated aauthentication" is not relevant for WinInet replay

b. web_set_certificate  is relevant for the SSL and not for the authentication

Most likely you need to define krb5.ini and I would recommend you review the following KB
