I want to host a Squid proxy that demands NTLM auth proxy-authenticate: NTLM. (It's to a test server--I'm developing a HTTP client that needs to cope proxies demanding this protocol--it's popular in Windows offices).

Anyway, the Squid setup is all done. This question isn't about Squid. Squid delegates authentication to ntlm_auth per http://www.squid-cache.org/Versions/v3/3.HEAD/cfgman/auth_param.html .

ntlm_auth - tool to allow external access to Winbind's NTLM authentication function

The problem is I don't have a Windows domain around. Is it possible to make Winbind (Samba) act like a Windows domain for the sake of ntlm_auth ? I just want one account with a given username and password. Someone with these credentials should be to authenticate to the proxy, but not do anything else on my computer.
