I know this is a MySQL user group, but someone may have experience with

I have setup Squid for Win32, and it is functioning fine.
Management wish to log user names for those using the proxy.
I have installed ident for Windows on a few boxes - this is working fine
(logging the usernames in c:\squid\log\access.log) I have the logs being
parsed (daily) into a MySQL database, and some php scripts generating
reports as needed.
This is all working good.

My question is - how can I enable Squid (on Win32), to automatically
store the user name of the user, in the log, using an Active Directory
lookup ?
Thus avoiding the need to install an ident service on each Windows
I think squid_ldap_auth need to be used, along with "auth_param basic
program" ? - but how ?
I have not been able to find much (any) example configs for doing this.
I do not (at this stage) need to allow access by group in AD, most
examples seem to focus on this. I just want the username in the logs...
Squid.conf examples would be much appreciated.

Mark Unwin.
