Subject Re: Support for NTLM proxy authentication?
Date Wed, 03 Dec 2003 03:05:08 GMT

NTLM is a proprietary protocol designed by Microsoft.  Currently, I know
that Jakarta Commons-HttpClient project is able to support NTLM
authentication.  CVSGrab, for example, is using HttpClient to make HTTP
connection, and hence it also implicitly support NTLM.

I don't know how many proxy servers out there in the world is configured
with NTLM authentication.  I do hope enough people can support me to make
the NTLM feature possible in Maven.  Otherwise, people like me who is
behind such proxy server would not be able to enjoy the benefits of Maven.

If I knew what NTLM authentication was and several users requested it
then possibly but no one else has raised the issue.
