RE: Squid 2.5 HEAD

It's a known limitation of the NTLMSSP authentication helper, and it
basically boils down
to the unreliability of the NT SMB_SessSetupAndX implementation. Use the
helper-fail-open option if you want, but be aware that there are serious
security issues with it.
There is no known workaround for the NetBios error 4, because it's not our
fault :)
The new winbindd helper should have no such problems, and in fact I strongly
you to try it out and let us know how it worked. The setup instructions are
a bit complex,
but they can be found in the archives of the squid-dev mailing-list.
As a side-note: please in the future refrain from using HTML-formatted
It makes proper answering indentation difficutl for the proper-MUA-impaired
such as myself.

Hello almighty people :)
First of all I want to wish you all the best and to thank you for the superb
software that you are coding! It's really great. 
I've downloaded the latest version of Squid -
I needed the NTLM features, so that's why I decided to use the HEAD version.
It really rox, but I had some problems with it and I want to report them to
I know that you are aware of them, but just wanted to ask is there any patch
available at the moment, which fixes the problem. I want to test it and
report if 
there are still any bugs or problems. I am talking about the problem with
the NTLM helper, which occasionally receives a "NetBios error code 4" and
the an 
authentication window pops up on the users' web browsers. I saw that there
is a bug report in the Bugzilla database - bug report #262, but I saw that
it was reported
2-3 weeks ago and wanted to ask if there is any solution for it. 
Also, I noticed that I cannot see ftp internal icons... The same problem
that appeared in Squid 2.3 STABLE4, described here -
_not_found>  and fixed with a patch, attached to the bug. I have the same
error message as in the
latter bug, but now it comes out with the HEAD version. Please, tell me if
there are patches for those bugs, because I want to use the new features in
the Squid server as soon
as possible.
Best wishes,
Boris Georgiev
