Yeah, that wasn't really the answer I was looking for. I really need to do
this. Is there maybe a way I can set up to use their password file in
conjunction with mine? (not too good since they won't let me do that). I
really need SOME way to do that.

The specs I know are that the server that I will be using as a peer is on
Windows NT 4 using CSM Proxy Server Enterprise. This proxy server will
basically doing most of the work. It will be going online, retrieving
resources, and authenticating.

I just want to set up my server as a throughput device that will augment to
that servers capabilities. Like add new users, add new features etc. Like I
was thinking there must be a feature like this...

acl password proxy_auth REQUIRED
http_access allow password
http_access allow !password cache_peer

Not exactly how I would say that but that last line is supposed to mean if
the authentication from this machine is no good but the authentication is
good from the other machine, then allow it. Or maybe another way to do it
might be to say "If the authentication from this machine fails, try to
authenticate the user on the peer machine."

Can't either of those statements be carried out? I think that there must be
a way to do such a thing.

Please help me out, Thanks,
