Meanwhile I found some time to have a look how NTLM auth actually works. As a
result I found out that the current 2.2.x proxy implementation does NOT support
NTLM, because there is no guarantee that the same backend connection is used for
the next request on a keepalive frontend connection. Each request from a
frontend connection leases a backend connection from a connection pool for the
request and returns it back to the pool immediately after the request has been
processed. If the next request on this keepalive frontend connection is
processed it may lease a different backend connection from the pool. As far as I
understand NTLM this approach is not compatible with NTLM. I will send a follow
up on the dev list for further discussion.
