Hi Amos,

Thanks for your reply.

I was hoping that I could inject the domain name somehow when the
credentials are being submitted. I can see now it's very much a Samba
related query,

Well, considering that NTLM is a protocol which operates by
authenticating that users are members of a domain. How do you expect
that would work?

IIRC the Samba ntlm_auth provides "--domain=DOMAIN" option to force
verification of all users against a certain domain (enabling no domain
on the popup). It is up to the client software to obtain the right
security tokens that domains DC will accept. Squid cannot do anything
about that.


Please be using
   Current Stable Squid 2.7.STABLE9 or 3.1.14
