I have a squid proxy server that is configured for authentication using
ntlm, but it is having an imapact on my network performance. Every http
packet seems be being checked and is being checked 2 or 3 times before
being let through.

Is there a way to minimise this over head or is there another
authenticaion method that we can use that does not rely on a local
passwd or auth file on the proxy server. 

Version is Squid 2.5STABLE4.

I can supply a copy of my config file if need be.
