I use this setup for user authentification on a LAN.

auth_param ntlm program /usr/bin/ntlm_auth --helper-protocol=squid-2.5-ntlmssp 
auth_param ntlm children 5
auth_param ntlm keep_alive on
auth_param basic program /usr/bin/ntlm_auth --helper-protocol=squid-2.5-basic
auth_param basic children 5
auth_param basic realm .LOCAL
auth_param basic credentialsttl 2 hours

when i want to log on internet the server can't recognize the user.

I don't know why

How do you know the server doesn't recognize the user? What do your squid/ntlm_auth logfiles say? – Dennis Kaarsemaker Jan 28 '13 at 13:09
the log file says Access Denied for the user. when i just put the ntlm basic i can log but if its ntlmssp i can't – user156403 Jan 28 '13 at 13:26
