PHP does not support NTLM authentication. ASP does it, Java does it, 
Perl does it, Python does it, but PHP don't . I don't know if and when 
it ever will because according to Rasmus Lerdorf, Windows PHP users "are 
second-class citizen when it comes to support from the open source 


I don't agree and even think that it is a stupid thing to say because 
open source is not about excluding Windows users even if there are much 
less open source developers with Windows knowledge there is no point in 
making Windows users feel bad about it.

Anyway, personally I don't use Windows nor have a project that motivate 
me to add support to NTLM authentication in PHP, but if you or anybody 
has interest in doing it and know enough C, I can tell you how to write 
a PHP extension to support that. Just let me know if you are interested.
