In my squid.conf:

this works for non IE browsers, IE fails:

auth_param ntlm program /usr/local/bin/ntlm_auth --helper-
auth_param basic program /usr/local/bin/ntlm_auth --helper-

(IE fails with: authenticateNTLMHandleReply: Error validating user via

Won't start when using:

auth_param ntlm program /usr/local/libexec/squid/ntlm_auth 
auth_param basic program /usr/local/libexec/squid/ntlm_auth

I've tried adding the windows domain name and server IP after like:
domainname/x.x.x.x and it doesnt start as well.
