The phrase "in house" suggests that the client having problems is 
located at another site.  How is that site connected to the server 
site?  Since NTLM auth is connection-based, you cannot have a proxy 
between browser and server (a proxy is required to maintain different 
TCP connections to the client and to the server).

This also rules out a firewall with an HTTP proxy between client and 
server.  VPN connections, packet filters and routers doing NAT should 
work, as they do allow a proper TCP connection between client and server.
