>                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-831
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-831
>             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: HttpClient
>    Affects Versions: 3.1 Final
>         Environment: debian stable, jdk1.5
>            Reporter: Ralf Hauser
>             Fix For: Future
> http://hc.apache.org/httpclient-3.x/authentication.html describes many aspects of authentication.
> We use httpClient to write a proxy and it simply writes back to the javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse
whatever the httpClient GetMethod sees.
> Works fine for a static web-site.
> However, when the proxy (httpClient GetMethod) hits a page of the remote server that
requires http basic auth, the response GetMethod copied to the javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse
will not trigger a http basic auth request in my firefox that the proxy could pass through.
