Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Additional info:

added a "--enable-auth \" line in the squid.specs file and recompiled the RPM

Comment 1 Economou, Matthew 2003-05-15 09:09:04 UTC
What's really strange is that the NTLM authentication helper modules were built 
for Squid, so one is lead to believe that NTLM authentication will work.  This 
is not the case.  Squid must be built with the '--enable-auth="basic,ntlm"' 
argument to configure in addition to the helper module flags in order for NTLM 
support to be activated.

To fix this problem, the Red Hat release engineer need only add the above 
configure flag and rebuild the package.

This feature was added in the latest squid RPM in Rawhide, in June 
2003.  I think this bug should be closed as 'resolved' now..
