Subject [jira] Created: (IVY-1094) Problem with NTLM proxy authentication

Problem with NTLM proxy authentication

                 Key: IVY-1094
             Project: Ivy
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: trunk
            Reporter: Mathieu Anquetin
             Fix For: trunk

I had problems to resolve and retrieve artifacts from an IBiblio Resolver. I was behind a
corporate proxy and even if this proxy was correctly configured in Ivy, I was permanently
denied access.
After looking at the HttpClientHandler source code, I found that this was due to a lack of
support for NTLM authentication. So I added this behavior in the submitted patch trying not
to break the original behavior.

Now, Ivy supports NTLM authentication if  -Dhttp.proxyRealm=<your_domain> is set in
ANT_OPTS. I could not test Basic Authentication but it seems to work also. Maybe someone can
confirm ?

Moreover, in order to avoid breaking an old bug, I put NTLM AuthPolicy after the Basic one
in the list authPrefs to make it of less priority during the scheme selection.
