    Identify against web service via kerberos


      I have the following problem:
      From an application on WebSphere 6.1 I need to call a WebService on a different host which can be accessed either via NTLM or Kerberos.
      From my application I have to use username@domain/password for authentication (always the same user needs to be authenticated, a user who has no meaning on the local system).

      I managed to authenticate using httpclient and NTLM, however it turned out that Kerberos needs to be used for calling the methods I want to call....

      So this is not about SSO, just for authenticating properly against that WebService. Any ideas how to manage this (either with WebSphere internal capabilities or Apache httpclient library)?

      Any help would be highly appreciated!

      Thanks in advance,
