You don't. You talk to our existing AD servers or UN*X KDCs. The firewall
needs to be able to get tickets (for password verification - just think of
the kdc as a RADIUS server, except secure), and have a keytab installed
(for ticket-based logins, if such things exist). For krsh proxying, you
don't talk to the KDC at all.
