Hi, My internet access is through an NTLM proxy ,so i tried the normal proxy-connection procedure in a WHOIS program that i am developing .... i.e ,setting the "proxySet","proxyHost","proxyPort" system properties and then ,setting the "Proxy-Authorization" property in the request header with the base64Encoded "username:password" string ... but,still the server is giving me 407 (Proxy authentication required" error. I even tried using the HTTPClient package ,but even that is giving me a "AuthSchemeNotImplException" Exception ... Any ideas ??? Is there a compatibilty issue b/w NTLM and Java ??? (i am using J2SE 1.3.1_06) [ January 26, 2003: Message edited by: Vikas Nair ]
NTLM authentication is a proprietary Microsoft protocol; as the exception you are reporting strongly suggests, the Java platform does not support it. Of course, enterprising companies and individuals have written support for it; a quick Google search threw up this interesting candidate among probably many others. - Peter
