Description

18 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; Windows 98; DigExt)
BuildID:    2001080814

I live in a large company, which use a Microsoft Proxy server to get an access 
to internet. I am in a small group which is using unix computers (AIX, Solaris, 
Linux, IRIX). All windows office PC can connect to internet with IE but 
everybody else cannot. I have tried it on any netscape/mozila version. When 
using opera I got an error "Unknown authentication method". when using MS IE 
5.0 for Solaris 2.6 I could get through.
I cannot change anything on the server side, they don't like unix at all.
Description:
I have filled in a proxy access. When I tried to access any page I got no 
user/password window or any other error, just a blank screen with 
<html><head><title>Error</title></head><body> as text in it.

I think the problem is in a authentication, internet access is authenticated 
against NT domain users and this is supported only by IE. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up an Microsoft Proxy server with authentication and hate unix.
2. Try to get through.
3.

Actual Results:  No page.

Dup of bug 35159 and bug 23679 . Mozilla doesn't support NTLM, the
authentication method used by the M$ Proxy (and IIS). Neither does any other
browser, Netscape included.

It's in the release notes, btw.
