Hi Lawrence,

Thanks for your suggestion using a proxy. I'm able to test the =
application by enabling basic authentication or anonymous access in our =
test environment. So the goal is to test it under customer conditions =
with NTLM and no proxy in between. I'm trying to provide all necessary =
information to Marc to get this working.

Hi Marc,

I stumbled across this problem previously too. I guess the main obstacle
that I was facing was that from discussions there seemed to be a fix for
NTLM authorisation, however, I had no idea of how to implement it in my
test. So, essentially I was doing trial and error but still could not =
get a
positive result.=20

When I looked at the information on the NTLM Proxy Patch page on the
community website, the tag that was specified for use did not seem to be
recognised by Webtest. The updated classes, in Webtest that the page
mentions, does not seem to be in the libraries provided, as I checked =
packages that they were supposed to be in from within the jars.


as a temporary measure you can use a software proxy that does NTLM
Authorisation. I am using NTLM authorization Proxy Server v0.9.8 by =
Rozmanov which has worked for me. I believe webcleaner works as well, =
is a web proxy that does all manner of http filtering with the added =
of NTLM Authorisation (not properly tested according to the author).

In saying that, I would love to have Webtest handle NTLM authorisation =
as it
would be more elegant and allow me to stop using extraneous programs.

Hi Jochen,

WebTest *should* be able to work with NTLM. Nevertheless it seems that =
not currently the case. The problem is that I'm not able to test it and =
nobody has given the necessary feedback to understand what is gooing =
If you want to see it fixed and are ready to make some tests, I propose =
to first look at [1] and inform me about the result. Best would be to
continue the disscussion privately as I may need to send you some fixed
