Yes, and now I partially know how the client works internally. But I
never worked on the source of the server, so I should first learn how
it works internally.

I think that the main problem is to handle automatically all steps of the
authentications. As said, I must first examine and understand how the
component works.
Is there already a similar situation, i.e. the component exchange
automatically more that one request with the client?

This should be true for authentication in general, not only for NTLM.
I checked (very quickly) the code but I don't understood how it
handle the basic authentication.

Speaking about the NTLM, I don't know if it will be "correct" to
don't use the Windows domain user base. Probably it is the only
reason to use the NTLM instead other authentications.
