Subject [HttpClient] - Digest Authentication
Date Wed, 19 May 2004 12:30:35 GMT
I am using HttpClient to talk to a server using digest authentication.

The server in question only changes the nonce value every fifteen minutes or
so. This 
is apparently to increase the performance by clients re-using digest
requests and 
being authorized immediately, only being challenged when the nonce changes.

My question is, does anyone know if HttpClient can be configured to re-use
its digest 
request information, and if so, how ?
