Synopsis: Access to a particualr site requiring authorisation fails with 401.2 error

State-Changed-From-To: open-closed
State-Changed-By: lars
State-Changed-When: Sun Mar 14 13:23:27 PST 1999
State-Changed-Why:
NTLM autentication is proprietary M$ authentication
scheme and violates the HTTP specifications (a duplicate
WWW-Authenticate header with wrong syntax is added to
the reponse by the MS Internet Information Server).

Most browsers (e.g. Netscape Navigator, Lynx) ignore
the duplicate header, but older MSIE browsers simply
fail... welcome to the wonderful world of Microsoft.

This isn't a bug in mod_proxy. You should complain
to Microsoft about this problem (and ask the admin
of the site to turn of NTLM authentication).
