Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1624) NTLMresp in type3message is being generated wrong when using NEGOTIATE_NTLM2_KEY
Date Fri, 27 Feb 2015 07:21:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1624?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14339834#comment-14339834

Karl Wright commented on HTTPCLIENT-1624:


Part of the problem with working with NTLM is that there is no real public specification for
NTLM, since it is a proprietary protocol.  The only way we can work with it at all is by looking
at what Microsoft publishes, and also doing experimentation against existing Windows machines
of different vintages that we can get access to.  To clarify my position -- in *your* case,
you've found a specific Windows configuration that does not work, and you have effectively
requested a logic change.  I'm happy to commit a logic change, but before I can do that in
good faith, we need to be reasonable sure we do not break other Windows configurations.  Since
you seem to have access at least to a Windows instance that you can play with, you are in
a far better situation than we are as far as exploring what the right combination of flags
are to signal NTLM, NTLM 2 Session, vs. NTLMv2.  This may take you a bit of time, and I don't
expect you to try every different variant of Windows, but we *do* need you to try out your
variant under multiple different configurations thoroughly enough to recommend logic that
at least works in all cases that Windows 7 supports.
