i want to have my poptop VPN server authenticate against my 
samba/LDAP server. Everywhere I read that for doing that I need 
ntlm_auth. reading the manuals of Samba I concluded that NTLM_AUTH 
only works if I have a M$ Active Directory server (read: a dedicated 
PC running windows 2000/2003) This seems odd to me. Please tell me I 
am wrong and I need to do my homework better.

kind regards
