I try to have a XP box using ntlm authentication when accessing a samba domain.
In apache I have the following stanza:
AuthName "NTLM Authentication thingy"
NTLMAuthHelper "/opt/samba/bin/ntlm_auth --helper-protocol=squid-2.5-ntlmssp"
In IE7 on the client I added the apache site to the list of intranet sites so
windows should use ntlm to send its credentials.
now when I access the apache site appache issues a challenge and announces it
would accept ntlm.
I checked that using whireshark, the relevant frame shows the following:
Hypertext Transfer Protocol
HTTP/1.1 401 Authorization Required\r\n
Request Version: HTTP/1.1
Response Code: 401
Date: Tue, 07 Apr 2009 10:53:07 GMT\r\n
Keep-Alive: timeout=15, max=100\r\n
Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1\r\n
however windows does not answer at all. IE does nothing but issuing a
"authorization required" error. Whireshark shows no more traffic.
can anybody help me to resolve this? (I am really desperate.., having worked
trough everyy tutorial I can find)
