Hi all. I'm not sure this is the right place to post, but here goes.

I've been implementing NTLM proxy authentication for Squid. This is the
'NT integrated' authentication MS-Proxy uses. I need to replace MS-Proxy
where I work, and I expect others do :).

Everything works fine save one problem. After Squid issues an NTLM
challenge with the '407: Proxy authentication required' page, both IE4 and
IE5 expect the connection to the proxy server to be held open for further
requests - Squid closes it. They can *not* issue the authorization in
reply by opening another connection.

To my question: at what point is the decision to close the connection
made? This is with squid-2.2.STABLE3.
