Well IE will present the Network Password Dialog whenever authentication
fails. So you could hack the filter to make it look like authentication
failed (might just be a matter of NOT returning the type-2-message in the
second response) just to trigger the NPD but then accept subsequent
negotiations. So you need to do a bait and switch. You would really need to
familarize yourself with the NTLM HTTP protocol [1] and use a packet sniffer
to observe how your changes to the filter affect the behavior of IE.
