continuing from the last post. If your network is all Windows based, then using the tricks mentioned in the previous post are of no use to you. That’s because Windows servers use NTLM authentication. It’s different from normal authentication, in the sense of a user, you won’t be able to use Linux happily on a network with that kind of authentication scheme. You need to keep an eye on how to use this tip to your benefits.
You need this to create your very own NTLM workaround proxy server. It’s called NTLM Authorization Proxy Server.
Setps for those-who-don’t-know-and-want-to-learn
- Download the NTLMAPS script.
- Download python.
- Unzip the NTLMAPS zip file and install python.
- Configure(edit and save) the server.cfg (read below).
- Double click on runserver.bat
voila, you see a console!
Configuring the server.cfg
You will need to modify these variables in the config file named “server.cfg” according to your network needs
And these variables if you need, normally they won’t require a change, but you might need to.
For me the configuration looks like
Note, if you don’t fill in the password, it will automatically ask when you run the “runserver.bat” file.
So now it’s all done, tell me if you use it successfully, or failed at it miserably!
