RE: [squid-users] Non-browser applications using NTLM+Squid?

How would I go about only forcing certain hosts to use NTLM auth, but allowing everyone else to use the proxy un-authenticated?

I have a ACL that contain's src's of IP's that I need to force to use NTLM:

acl requirentlm proxy_auth REQUIRED
acl requirentlmhosts src
http_acccess allow requirentlmhosts requirentlm

This takes care of forcing "requirentlmhosts" to auth, but if I have another http_access rule that allows everyone else, what keeps "requirentlmhosts" from getting out without auth?

Not sure why I didn't think of that. Thanks!

These applications, in my experience, use Windows' proxy settings to proxy their outbound traffic, but can't speak NTLM, so the application is prevented from proxying any traffic.

very simple.. just allow them all before the authentication acls such as in:

acl updates dstdomain
acl updates1 dst

http_access allow localnet updates
http_access allow localnet updates1
http_access allow localnet ntlm_auth_helper
http_access deny all
