On one of the corporate networks I log into, I use CNTLM to centralise my proxy settings. It's great, because when I have to change my password every so often, I only need to change it in one spot, and everything else works.

On another network I log into, they have a proxy server that isn't using NTLM. I tried to configure CNTLM to use it, but it doesn't seem to work.

Does anyone know of any software like CNTLM that uses non-NTLM auth (basic/digest/etc.) in Linux?
