Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1258) NTLM authentication fails for local accounts
Date Thu, 08 Nov 2012 10:33:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1258?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13493093#comment-13493093

Oleg Kalnichevski commented on HTTPCLIENT-1258:
-----------------------------------------------

Øystein

I committed the following change set to the 4.2.x branch that should address the immediate
problem and fix the NPE. 

http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=revision&revision=1406998

However, it looks like the default NTLMEngine implementation expects both the hostname and
the domain to be non-null. When using a local account try using the name of the host as both
hostname and domain and let me know if that fixes the problem.

Oleg

PS: I wish we could simply bundle JCIFS with HttpClient and throw away our own implementation.

> Authenticating to a windows PC using a local account (administrator) fails. In this case,
the domain property should be NULL.
> Setting domain=null fails with a nullpointerexception
> Setting domain="" fails with a wrong username/password
> JCIFS does not have this issue and can be used as a workaround
