RE: [squid-users] NTLM authentication not working with Squid 2.5 + Samba 3.0 after reading all the FAQs

Now it's working thanks to all of you guys.
In my case there were two issues to fix:

1. The permission on /var/cache/samba/winbind_privileged
  #chmod 750 /var/cache/samba/winbind_privileged
  #chgrp squid /var/cache/samba/winbind_privileged

2. The character separator is \ and not + so I changed this line:
    acl domain_admins proxy_auth mydomain+testuser
  with this one:
    acl domain_admins proxy_auth mydomain\testuser

Thank you very much.

Freddy Chavez.

Only root should have w. The other users who should be allowed to access
this directory should have x and optionally r.

Recommended method is to create a group for winbind authentication and
make sure all services requiring this interface (i.e. Squid) is running
with this group.

  chgrp winbind /path/to/winbindd_privileged
  chmod 750 /path/to/winbindd_privileged (if you have changed the

  change Squid to run with group winbind

Or if access to the OS of your server is restricted you can take the easy
path out and allow all users access to winbindd_privileged

  chmod 755 /path/to/winbindd_privileged
