Subject NTLM authorization header
Date Thu, 24 Mar 2005 07:39:04 GMT
Hello, 

I am new to HttpClient, and trying to use HttpClient in a servlet to implement a single-sign-on
requirement.

When an user's browser hits the servlet, the servlet will use HttpClient to:

1) logon on to another web application via NTLM authentication

2) request the first content page of that application 

3) put the response from that application into the servlet's response outputstream, which
will redirect the browser to that application directly onwards.

I have a problem here. Since the httpclient has been authenticated by that application, how
can the servlet passes the "authorization headers" and "response headers" down to the browser
so the application will not authenticate the browser user again.

Hope somebody can enlighten me on this.

Many thanks in advance.

Richard
