Subject RE: Support for NTLM proxy authentication?
Date Wed, 03 Dec 2003 03:11:11 GMT
File it in JIRA and users can vote on it. I imagine if httpclient supports
it we can get it in reasonably easily (but don't hold me to that!).

Even better - is there someone who has an NTLM proxy setup who could
implement and test it?
