NTLM Authentication Supported by Mozilla on All Platforms

Tuesday November 18th, 2003

Microsoft's NTLM authentication protocol, popular on Windows-based corporate networks, is now supported by Mozilla on all platforms. Previously, NTLM authentication was only available to Windows Mozilla users, requiring the presence of the Windows SSPI API. Now, the SSPI code has been discarded and a cross-platform implementation has been checked in. Bug 224653 has more details, including a list of caveats.

Sadly enought my university upgraded all servers this summer and at the same time adding NTLM authentication(well i think so,,, if i use lynx it returns " Alert!: Invalid header 'WWW-Authenticate: NTLM' ") to the private parts of their webpage, <http://www.te.hik.se/tekinet>... strangely enough i cant log in using mozilla 1.6 (under gentoo liunx, binaries from mozilla.org)... anyone know why it doesn't work?
