Subject Re: domain argument in AuthScope constructor ineffective for NTLM

I assume that "type 2 response" has nothing to do with NTLMv2, which
is unsupported:

Probably not. Unfortunately, nobody here (that I am aware of) is familiar
with the NTLM code in HttpClient. We all just hope that it works without
problems until we can replace it by jCIFS or whatever.

Please open a bug report in JIRA.[1] If you can provide a testcase
similar to those in [2] that exposes the problem, I will have a look
at it within the next two months. Otherwise, it will have to wait
until we get around to addressing NTLM authentication in 4.0, which
may take a year.
