Regardless, how does your EZProxy talk to your directory server? If it is over LDAP normally you just get a user not authenticated message, so your trail ends there. I don't have a ton of experience with EZProxy, feel free to correct me.

That sort of information is generally considered to be a security violation. If someone is probing your system, being told that they got the ID right and all they have left is to figure out the password is a big help.
I'm afraid that unhelpful messages are best for unverified clients.

Subject: Ez proxy -deliver message saying why not authenticated
I just thought I would try and ask here since I haven't found anything elsewhere: has anyone written a script that delivers a more nuanced error message when using Ez proxy? For example:
User name is right password is wrong
Password is expired
Username locked out
