I am using the Windows 8 Release Preview, but most of the apps aren't working for me, as my institute's LAN connection is proxy based, that requires basic authentication.

I need help in configuring CNTLM for bypassing the authentication.

.pls help me out..
Otherwise, please suggest any alternative means for this problem

This guy claims to have modified CNTLM to support basic auth: (I haven't verified that this works on windows personally (it works fine on my linux))

I use polipo for the same purpose, and it seems to work fine on windows (at least for http connections, dunno about https)

it works, cntlm segfaults with libc2.17 though, so make sure you're using libc2.16 or earlier
