Subject RE: Strange behavior when performing basic authentication
Date Thu, 29 Nov 2012 22:31:56 GMT
I've found HTTPClient 4 to be the best for NTLM authentication. I have seen issues where I
recorded using the Java implementation w/ the proxy server and then switched to HTTPClient4
for playback w/ the best results.
