 Here is my question.  The example is using all windows and not unix, so I am not 100% sure
on my syntax AND I have two domains I am working with.  One for the tomcat server and one
for the windows domain controller.  The example shows them all on the same domain and I have

I am not sure, but I believe, that the SPNEGO authentication which is included in Tomcat 
right now presupposes that the Tomcat host itself is a Windows machine, and member of the

Windows domain in which you want the authentication to take place (or probably at least a

trusted domain).

If that were the case, then you may be better off having a look at the other alternatives

indicated in that documentation page, or at Jespa ( which is a commercial 
(but affordable) solution which works with whatever OS Tomcat is running under.

I can't figure out from the Waffle website if Waffle works on other than on Windows Tomcat

hosts either.
