Im not sure what you do not understand from the reply, NTLM auth is
broken. This is not about "lets call it Voodoo_melt" and make it work,
Windows utilizes NTLM, so... what you are trying to use will not work.
why? because NGINX NTLM does not work.
Now, if you are looking for a solution... a solution you may have.
re-route your authentication to squid which does support NTLM auth . If
this is not what you want to do then you are more than welcome to write
a NTLM auth module that works.
