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.

is this bug truly fixed? at my company we're using IE and IIS 5.0 left and right and I still have to type in my user credentials all the time. An ethereal trace on my computer when connecting to an internal site using the dreaded Internet Explorer shows NTMLSSP_NEGOTIATE, NTLMSSP_CHALLENGE and NTLMSSP_AUTHENTICATE messages passing to and from the IIS 5.0 webserver. When I try to connect to the same site using Mozilla 1.7.3 I see none of the messages. Is there something I need to enable in Mozilla?

thx for your help,
