I have a very tricky problem with IBM WebSeal which is used as some kind of proxy which authenticates users against a LDAP server and then forwards the URL to the IS 6.0.1 SP2.
When connecting to the IS with the follwing HTTP Get request:
via: HTTP/1.1 server:80
user-agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 4.0)
authorization: Basic WDgzOTg0OnNlY3JldA==
accept: image/gif, image/x-xbitmap, image/jpeg, image/pjpeg, application/vnd.ms-excel, application/msword, application/vnd.ms-powerpoint, /
accept-encoding: gzip, deflate
I get the error:
HTTP/1.0 401 Unauthorized
When I send the same request with an UPPERCASE A in authorization, it is working properly. Since the WebSeal only creates the lower case variant, my question is whether this behaviour can be changes on the IS. I can’t believe that the “Authorization” line has to be Uppercase for the A.
Any comments welcome
