With the following possible values:
0 = Send LM & NTLM responses
1 = Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated
2 = Send NTLM response only
3 = Send NTLMv2 response only
4 = Send NTLMv2 response only\refuse LM
5 = Send NTLMv2 response only\refuse LM & NTLM
We might want to look at registry patches initially to reduce the value to 2
(the default is 3).
Thought you might find it interesting.
