Hi Roland,

Thanks for the responses.

Yes I am authenticating with NTLM against the server, and successfully
get back a redirect (when I do getResponseBodyAsString on the getMethod
the index page content is displayed). As you said how should I use
HttpState for redirection any idea on the same?

For your reference I am attaching the source so that you can correct me
if something is wrong with this code?

Hello Naresh,

I don't have code snippets. Sorry if I got you wrong regarding
authentication. So you authenticate with NTLM against the
server, and you successfully get back a redirect? Make sure
to use the same HttpState when following that redirect with
HttpClient, then the request to the index page should be
just as authentic as then one that brought you the redirect.

NTLM is a connection-based authentication scheme, not
a session-based one. Each request must be authenticated,
you can not just authenticate once and then send further
requests without authentication.

hope that helps,
