offer any suggestions on how to do this? Service now does not do interactive auth, I have

Make sure you are not affected by HTTPCLIENT-1215. The downside of this
approach is that HttpClient will not retry authentication by using
another scheme in case of preemptive authentication failure.

One can also use internal HttpClient logging facility to produce packet
wire dump along with some contextual details that can come quite handy.

Make sure you are not affected by HTTPCLIENT-1215. If the default port
value (-1) is not the culprit, post a wire / context log of the session
and I'll have a look at it.
