Squid proxy authentication for Win2K domain users

How can I use Squid proxy authentication for Windows 2000 domain users? Is it necessary to build a LDAP database? Can you please provide some URLs for getting more information on this?

You can authenticate the users right from the Active Directory Database using Winbind part of the Samba 3.x package.

All the information you need is right here:

The section entitled "How do I use the Winbind authenticators?" should give you an adequate explanation. In short, the Samba Winbind package should be able to connect and authenticate to your Windows server. Then, Samba is the conduit to let Squid have that authentication data without the need for an LDAP database.
