squid giving error while authenticating with Microsoft ADS

Im using squid-2.6.STABLE12 as the proxy server on a centos 4.4
machine with 2.6.9-42.ELsmp kernel.

I have the following squid.conf file

http_port 8080

cache_dir ufs /home/danish/squid/var/cache 100 16 256

acl all src

http_access allow all

cache_effective_user squid

cache_effective_group squid

auth_param basic program /home/danish/squid/libexec/digest_ldap_auth -
R -b "dc=vertexsoft,dc=com" -D
"cn=Administrator,cn=Users,dc=vertexsoft,dc=com" -w "password" -F
sAMAccountName=%s -h ip-of-the-ads-machine

auth_param basic children 5

auth_param basic realm Vertexsoft Proxy Server

auth_param basic credentialsttl 5 minutes

but when I start the squid server with the following command, it gives
me the following errors:

#su squid -c "/home/danish/squid/sbin/squid -NCd 1"
