Forwarding tickets via Kerberized SSH

I have not been able to successfully find any good documentation on setting up Kerberos to forward tickets in my environment. The KDC works perfectly, but I am having trouble setting up the following situation: Client A and Server B both have Kerberized SSH. I want to be able to call ssh from A to connect to B with my ticket. B then forwards/checks the ticket against the KDC server. If the credentials are approved, allow the SSH connection.

I understand the basic concept of Kerberized SSH, but I cannot find any documentation as to how to set up the machines, particularly Server B.

Do you have GSSAPI turned on?

Some of the options look like:
# Kerberos options
#KerberosAuthentication no
#KerberosOrLocalPasswd yes

# GSSAPI options
#GSSAPIAuthentication no
#GSSAPICleanupCredentials yes
did you try searching for ssh+gssapi on google?

some spidering off those hits will net:
Could you post some details about the two systems in question - OS, SSH/SSHD, kerberos details.
