Question Answered By: Himanta Barthakur   on Dec 20

I'd like to clear up a few points here on NTLM that have been posted during
the course of this thread. First of all, NTLM (actually NTLMv2 in its
current state) is a proprietary Microsoft Authentication protocol. Kerberos
is a separate authentication means that is more widely used, faster and more
secure than NTLM. NTLM can certainly pass through firewalls, provided the
proper ports have been opened for it. Where it runs into trouble is with
proxy servers, since as has been mentioned, keep-alives must be enabled and
many proxys do not support this.
