The NtlmAuthenticator class is not used for web applications:


It's basically just a callback that allows the developer to fetch
credentials using a password dialog or reading strings from the console.

You will have to create your own logon form in HTML and pass the
credentials to an NtlmPasswordAuthentication object.
