Subject Re: TestWebappBasicAuth fails on IIS

Hi Dan,

I haven't looked into the test cases yet, so I don't know
about how many uid/pwd combinations we are talking here.
If it's only a few, you could create Windows users for them.
IIS still checks the Auth header, but it lets the request pass
through since it knows the user.
If that is not an option and resequencing of the IIS plugins
doesn't help, I'm out of ideas here.

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 
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.
