in reply to Using Kerberos Authentication with HTTP Basic Auth

You might want to use LWP::Authen::Negotiate, which gets your GSSAPI to do all of the heavy lifting for you.

While I don't necessarily recommend it, I should mention that it is possible to use Active Directory as a Kerberos Server. If you are unable to get your CygWin setup working, you might want to look at that instead.
