Subject Re: TestWebappBasicAuth fails on IIS

Roland, I have IIS connecting to tomcat containing httpclienttest.war via 
iis_redirector, and run httpclienttest against iis.

As you have said, IIS does intercept the header.  I can either add the 
user/password hardcoded in the httpclienttest to IIS and run the test again, 
or I can figure out how to make IIS not to intercept the basic 
authentication.  The later one is the perfer way. but still no clue yet.
