RE: [squid-users] Kerberos authentication & pre-caching in Squid for Windows

I have been trying to see what authentication options that I have as well
(in regards to AD & LDAP). I would assume that the suggestion given of using
the 2.7 binaries for Windows would imply that Squid will be ran on Windows.

What would the said suggestion be for Linux Squid users? I do not really
want to use Basic Authentication. I believe in a bit more security...

A Windows native Negotiate (Kerberos) helper is included in official
Squid sources starting from Squid 2.6 STABLE 1.

Just download the latest 2.7 binaries for Windows
( and configure
squid to use the mswin_negotiate_auth.exe helper for negotiate auth
schema, no options are required, it works just out of the box.
