Hmm, I don't know how to fix this. To me it looks a bit like
sacrificing a clear and common DNS setup in favor of a very special 
setup (for which I don't know how to get Kerberos working).  This tuned
setup works out of the box at the University of Oslo in a special
environment, but causes hassle and confusion probably everywhere else.

Any ideas how to solve that and continue?

Best regards,
