Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1266) Flag issues in NTLM implementation prevent authentication on some servers
Date Wed, 05 Dec 2012 12:54:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1266?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13510455#comment-13510455
] 

Karl Wright commented on HTTPCLIENT-1266:
-----------------------------------------

The tests require that some methods and classes have protected scope, otherwise I agree.
Please also remember that I am actively recruiting testers with varied environments, so there
could be subsequent changes as a result of that effort.  I will create new tickets if/when
these situations arise.

Once logic has all been confirmed, I am curious whether it might be possible to include this
in a point release of 4.2.  But we will address that when everything is ready.

> At the ManifoldCF project, we've recently encountered two SharePoint servers (Windows
2008 Server R2) which seem to be configured in a way that the connector cannot authenticate
with them using httpcomponents NTLM.  It's worth noting that cURL succeeds, so the NTLM setup
is apparently reasonable.  Furthermore, the mcf patched version of commons-httpclient also
fails in exactly the same way, so it looks like a long-standing issue.
> Working through the problem, it appears that the NTLM flags httpclient sends are, in
some cases, inconsistent with the data we include.  I am working on a httpclient patch, which
I hope to be able to exercise in one of the client situations within the next week or two.
