Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I wasn't really sure whether to file this question under Security or networking, but I finally decided on security as it is an authentication based question.
I'm curious about how to setup/debug Cyrus SASL (saslauthd) to be able to use NTLM as an authentication mechanism.
In /usr/lib/sasl2/smtpd.conf i have:
mech_list: PLAIN LOGIN NTLM
and I can telnet to the localhost:25 and after ehlo, it DOES say it has support for auth method NTLM ( 250-AUTH PLAIN LOGIN NTLM ); I also have the package: cyrus-sasl-ntlm-2.1.22-4 installed on my CentOS machine.
I have a user trying to authenticate to postfix using NTLM, and I'm getting the following error message in the logfile /var/log/messages (substitute XXXX for valid user on the system, and hostname.domain for the local hostname of the computer).
