Is it possible that HttpClient attempts to use NTLM despite the  
explicit exclusion from scheme policy? I'm struggling with my  
customer. They're using a squid proxy with DOMAIN\user and host  
parameters and they state these parameters are fine for basic  
authentication, they use it with Firefox, Java, Lynx, etc.

If I set "DOMAIN\user" and "passwd" params to U..Credentials it will  
automaticly identify them as params to use NTLM?

A piece of log:
> org.apache.commons.httpclient.auth.AuthChallengeProcessor  
> selectAuthScheme
> INFO: ntlm authentication scheme selected

So what's your opinion what causes HttpClient to chose NTLM?
