Firefox-squid in linux. Any way for SSO
I'm trying to authenticate my Firefox(Linux) to Squid (Linux) using NTLM without having to type my domain/user and password.
What I have:
- Win2003 running IIS (Internet Information Server).
- RedHat running Squid 2.6.STABLE14
- Client WinXP with IE and Firefox.
- Clients Ubuntu 8.04 and OpenSuse 11.2 integrated with AD with Likewise (ubuntu) and Samba (Opensuse).
What I've got:
1- IIS on Sever Win2003 and Client Firefox (Ubuntu 8.04 and OpenSuse 11.2):
I can connect to Win2003 and I'm not asked for domain\username and password. NTLM works fine.
2- RedHat with Squid and Client WinXP (Firefox and IE).
I can access a protected URL with authentication and I'm not asked for username and password. NTLM works fine, both Firefox and IE.
What I've not got:
3- RedHat with Squid and client Ubuntu-Firefox
When I try to access the same URL protected with authentication (trough squid), I'M ASKED for domain\username and password. If I type it, I'm allowed to access.
What I want is not to be prompted, just extract it from my session, the same if the client were WinXp.
- IIS: I can use NTLM form Windows and Linux clients and it works fine.
- Squid: I can use NTLM if client is Firefox-Windows, but I'm asked to type domain\username and password if client is Firefox-Ubuntu.
Why do I have to type the domain\username and password if my client is Firefox-Linux if it works fine with Windows-Firefox-IE? What`s wrong?
Do I need add a new plugging or something to Firefox in Linux?
Can I use any other auth method in Firefox so I don't have to type the username/pass?
I've realized that this problem occurs with other proxy servers.
