Again, I must be missing something (I admit I am not very familiar with NTLM authentication). So the server sends a 401 error response, your client detects this right after sending the header, while in the process of sending the body. It then reacts immediately by terminating the connection. It then re-connects and responds to the 401 response with a new request which includes the authentication header. How is this different than the normal way: You send your request completely (head and body), the server responds with a 401 error response and closes the connection (or you close the connection). You then re-connect and perform the request again with the authentication header. -dZ. -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://lists.elists.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
