NTLM authentication proxies

continuing from the last post. If your network is all Windows based, then using the tricks mentioned in the previous post are of no use to you. That’s because Windows servers use NTLM authentication. It’s different from normal authentication, in the sense of a user, you won’t be able to use Linux happily on a network with that kind of authentication scheme. You need to keep an eye on how to use this tip to your benefits.

You need this to create your very own NTLM workaround proxy server. It’s called NTLM Authorization Proxy Server.

Setps for those-who-don’t-know-and-want-to-learn

  1. Download the NTLMAPS script.
  2. Download python.
  3. Unzip the NTLMAPS zip file and install python.
  4. Configure(edit and save) the server.cfg (read below).
  5. Double click on runserver.bat

voila, you see a console!

Configuring the server.cfg

You will need to modify these variables in the config file named “server.cfg” according to your network needs

LISTEN_PORT:5865

PARENT_PROXY:your_parentproxy

PARENT_PROXY_PORT:8080

NT_DOMAIN:your_domain

USER:username_to_use

PASSWORD:your_nt_password

And these variables if you need, normally they won’t require a change, but you might need to.

LM_PART:1

NT_PART:0

SCR_DEBUG:0

ALLOW_EXTERNAL_CLIENTS:0

FRIENDLY_IPS:

For me the configuration looks like

LISTEN_PORT:4000

PARENT_PROXY:10.100.56.45

PARENT_PROXY_PORT:3128

NT_DOMAIN:your_domain

USER:200301001

PASSWORD:

LM_PART:1

NT_PART:0

SCR_DEBUG:0

ALLOW_EXTERNAL_CLIENTS:0

FRIENDLY_IPS:10.100.90.90 10.100.96.69

Note, if you don’t fill in the password, it will automatically ask when you run the “runserver.bat” file.

So now it’s all done, tell me if you use it successfully, or failed at it miserably!

Inactivity

Sorry fellas,

I know we are inactive at the moment as lots of stuff is happening in our lives, most of us just finished the college and are in process of moving to some place or another. Few of us are going abroad for studies, so we are not getting much time to post. But I must mention the response from the readers is great. And for the first 40 days the average reader count per day was 160, with maximum of 474 views on a single day. So sit tight we will be back soon, I guess I will start again by 1st week of June, rest of us will take a little more time to start blogging again. Till then cya, take care 🙂

Welcome from Fr0z3n

I wish Gurus all the best.  Also thanks to Guru (identity unknown) .
