Subject: Problems handling authentication with multiple "Proxy-Authenticate" headers
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 477b
I'm trying to connect through a MS Proxy server which requires authentication. The proxy server is sending me a response with multiple "Proxy-Authenticate" headers (NTLM, Basic realm="xxxxx", Kerberos and Negotiate, in this order). LWP only sees NTLM as an authentication method and thus can't authenticate (despite Authen::NTLM). It should see basic authentication as an option and authenticate using it, but it only says that "ntlm" is not a supported authentication scheme.

From reading the code that tries to deal with it is looks like this ought to work. Are you able to tell me exactly what the response form the proxy server looks like?
