You mean in regard to that NTLM Auth uses a challenge response
mechanism? My question was more aimed towards this, ntlm challenge response
auth makes uses of a nt and a lm hash during the process,
are thoses hashes the same hashes I need to insert into my
LDAP/mysql/... passdb backend for the user to be able to
login with the password used for generating those hashes?
