Goes to show how confusing that URI class can be. <grin>

Anyway, you're code looks good for setting the default credentials to use.
I think you'll need to provide the full wire trace log and the seasoned
experts around here should be able to see the problem (slap me if I've just
missed the log file go flying by).

I did some more testing with and without a host configuration in accessing a
different port.  It does work either way.  I think the last part of the log
message threw me off in stating http:80 (see below).  So, now I am back to
thinking it is an authentication problem.  Based on the
BasicAuthenticationExample, I assume that all that is required is to set
credentials
        client.getState().setCredentials(
            null,
            new UsernamePasswordCredentials("user", "pwd")
        );

and then set
        get.setDoAuthentication( true );

The null in setCredentials means set this user/pwd as default.


log...

HttpConnection - -HttpConnectionManager.getConnection:  creating connection

Hi Drake,
It looks like HttpMethodBase is trying to parse retrieve the port from the
URL, but there appears to be a bug in the URI class such that it's not
finding the port.  Only Sung-Gu really knows much about that class so if
he's around I'd love to hear from him. :)

Otherwise, we'll have to log this as a bug and take a look at it when
someone is free.  I know that the URI classes are moving to their own
commons project soonish, but I think it's time someone needs to learn what
they're on about so we can support them better.  If I find time I guess that
will be me.  I'm not sure when that will be though so hopefully someone will
beat me to it. :)  In the mean time you'll have to create the host
configuration yourself and pass it through.

Adrian,

The code is below.  It is a modification of BasicAuthenticationExample.java.
I've just added the port number to the url of the GetMethod constructor.
Thanks for you help.

        HttpClient client = new HttpClient();

        // pass our credentials to HttpClient, they will only be used for
        // authenticating to servers with realm "realm", to authenticate
agains
        // an arbitrary realm change this to null.
        client.getState().setCredentials(
            null,
            new UsernamePasswordCredentials("user", "pwd")
        );

        // create a GET method that reads a file over HTTPS, we're assuming
        // that this file requires basic authentication using the realm
above.
        GetMethod get = new
GetMethod("https://www.xyz.com:2082/getsqlbackup/trace.gz");

        // Tell the GET method to automatically handle authentication. The
        // method will use any appropriate credentials to handle basic
        // authentication requests.  Setting this value to false will cause
        // any request for authentication to return with a status of 401.
        // It will then be up to the client to handle the authentication.
        get.setDoAuthentication( true );


        // execute the GET
        int status = client.executeMethod( get );
