It uses an SSL connection for authentication, prompting the user for a username and password. Chimera does not work properly with the re-direct, it typically gives a "Document contains no data" error and the login screen does not appear. I do see that Chimera is trying to contact the proxy server during the re-direct, but it does not connect. I am using Chimera build 2002122004. Netscape 7.01 works properly with the re-direct. So does Mozilla, build 2002121216 Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open Chimera 2. Enter a URL 3. Wait for the error message Actual Results: Nothing. The status bar indicates Chimera is trying to contact the proxy server, but the login screen does not appear Expected Results: An SSL login screen should appear, giving users the opportunity to enter their password and username.
John, is this still a problem with recent Camino Nightlies?
Chris, There has been some change, but it is still an issue. When I start Camino (20033030613), it will typically time out with the "Page contains no data" error message. If I attempt to reload the page, after the fourth or fifth attempt, it will usually properly re-direct and show the authentication screen. I can log on and browse normally. Our BMgr proxy is set to require re-authentication if the browser is idle for four minutes. I have only had one time when the re-authentication has failed, requiring multiple reloads. It seems that once the re-direct succeeds, Camino "remembers" it until the program is quit. During the reload attempts, the status bar shows the destination URL. When the "no data" dialog appears, the status bar shows the BMgr URL. On successful attempts, the status bar shows the BMgr URL initially, then the authentication screen appears. I know my version is not the latest nightly... I will download a more recent version and test it tomorrow. Netscape and Mozilla do not exhibit this problem. Hope this helps. --> John
I've had the opportunity this morning to test the 5/17 nightly (2003051705). I was unable to access the authentication page at all, even after more than 25 re-load attempts. During the connection attempts, the status bar initially shows "Connect to www.google.com" for several seconds. Then, the status bar changes to "Connect to 10.1.1.14" (the proxy server IP address), and almost immediately after, the "Document contains no data" dialog appears. During a successful connection (using the .7 beta), the sequence goes "Connect to www.google.com", followed by "Transferring data from 10.1.1.14", then the authentication screen appears. It almost seems that the re-direct issued by Bordermanager causes a timeout rather than a re-direct within Camino. Of course, this is purely speculation as I am not a coder. Hope this helps. --> John
not sure how to test.
