The version can do KfW or SSPI. It will look for
gsslib32.dll, and if gss_acquire_cred shows credentials, it will try
gss. If not it will try SSPI. The mods to do this came from gssklog :-)
The version we are using is based on PuTTY 5.8.

I sent a separate note Friday to the PuTTY project, thanking them for
starting to work on GSS, and asked if the would pick up KfW and
gss kex. I have not received an answer yet.

I believe the v_t_m version is smart enough to not flash any screens.

You have to setup a session ahead of time to load, as all the GSS setting
are not available on the command line.
