The Samba RPM shipped by RedHat does not include challenge-response
support required for NTLM operation.

The old ntlm_auth shipped with Squid-2.5 is not related to Samba. It is
known to have quite many problems.

I would highly recommend switching to Samba-3 and the helper shipped with

Your server does not know the IP address of your domain controller. It
probably needs to be added to /etc/hosts or something.

But as said above, skip this helper and instead go for Samba-3. Much more
