Subject RE: [users@httpd] Passing proxy authentication user name
Date Mon, 14 Jan 2013 16:08:42 GMT

I have dumped the env and it doesn't include the auth info. I have confirmed that the proxy-authorization
header is being sent by the proxy server.
I found somewhere, that I can't find again, something that implied that apache had to be compiled
with a specific option to allow it to transmit this header to the pages or scripts. I really
hope that this isn't the case as I really don't have the weeks required to get a server to
build a compile environment and gather all the bits and pieces that I'd need to do that.
