How to use the NEST API using FirebaseSharp

This article demonstrates how to call Nest API from .NET using FirebaseSharp, an unofficial open source Firebase.NET client.

To follow along and test drive Nest API you do not need to own a Nest device, a simulator is available. Continue reading “How to use the NEST API using FirebaseSharp”

One of the errors that often reoccur when deploying a service is the Kerberos authentication failing for some reason when another system depends on your service. Depending users or services try to log on to your service but are not allowed to access it. This is not a problem with the enduser but with the rights of the service account on which the service itself is running. The service account doesn’t have the right to delegate access or impersonate the enduser. About 9 times out of 10 this is caused by inproper Kerberos rights due to a faulty SPN (or ServicePrincipalName) configuration and sometimes due to the delegation settings on the service account.

First lets take a look at how…
