3.72.3. NtlmAuthProg Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

This optional parameter specifies the path name and arguments for the ntlm_auth program. Defaults to ‘/usr/bin/ntlm_auth --helper-protocol=ntlm-server-1’.
Tip
The ‘--helper-protocol=ntlm-server-1’ is an important part of the arguments to ntlm_auth and is required for the correct interaction between AuthBy NTLM and ntlm_auth. If it is not included, AuthBy NTLM will not work correctly.
Tip
You can require that authenticated users belong to a certain group with:
NtlmAuthProg /usr/bin/ntlm_auth --helper-protocol=ntlm-server-
1 --require-membership-of=MyGroupName
Tip
You can specify that the NTLM authentication requests appear to come from a workstation with a specified name. This can be used to restrict authentication for certain users by setting workstation requirements in their Windows user configuration.
NtlmAuthProg /usr/bin/ntlm_auth --helper-protocol=ntlm-server-
1 --workstation=MyWorkstationName
