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'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.
Hmmm. I'm not sure that I'm thinking the same thing as you, and from what you say, you may already have set this up. Anyway, take a look at this: http://it.toolbox.com/wiki/index.php...tication_Setup, and look from step 4 on. Because you have used Likewise Open to join clients, all the messy steps 1-3 are done for you. Have a go, preferably in a test environment!
