I used the overbytehttptst program and noted that the headers stated that NTLM was indeed an option in the 407 response.

So, for the proxy user I used the domain\user credentials, and the IT dept supplied me the password, which I used for the proxy password.

This worked a charm.

Any pointers, if not specific answers are appreciated.

HttpClient has nothing to do with ActiveDirectory. It is the web server you
connect to that handle the authentication and validate user/pass against the
ActiveDirectory. As far as HTTP is concerned, the web server may accept
user/pass using any of the standard authentication scheme. When
ActiveDirectory is in action, it is likely that NTLM is used but not always.
