Tree Closed for M13

Wednesday January 19th, 2000

The tree has closed for M13 stabilization, so we can expect to see an M13 build show up sometime within the next week or so. There has been a lot of work done over the past few weeks, and I think a lot of people will be happy with the progress they see in the final M13 binaries. Keep an eye out here for news and more of what to expect in M13.

There are basically two different ways to determain who can access a Proxy server. One is everybody who knows it's IP address/machine name and one is restricted to people with a valid username/password combination. I would guess that yours falls into the second catagory. In that catagory, there are different ways to authenticate. The easiest and most strait forward is basic/plain text. This is where a browser send your user name and password to the proxy server with absolutly no encryption. This method is currently supported by Mozilla. Another way is a challenge/responce. The only one of this type I know of for sure is NTLM (M$'s proticol). This method is currently not supported by Mozilla. Although, based on you're statement that it work it NS 4.7, I'd say this particular type of Authentication isn't used on your proxy server (NTLM only works with IE). It would really help if you could tell us more specifics on your setup (if you even know them) as there are many different makers of Proxy's (I know Novell has one based on NDS and am sure there are others).
