                    windows authentication.

          Platform: All

          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: General/Unknown

The method Http::get, which is within includes/HttpFunction.php, will not work
if you use windows authentication within IIS.  We believe it is because
Integrated Windows Authentication does not allow automated access to a URL via
PHP.   We noticed the error within the dump html extension: in the
method makeUrlSnapshot.  

We created this method as a work around.   It changes the url to a file using
$IP.  See the comments for restrictions to this method.  

    * Added to replace  function 'makeUrlSnapshot( $url )'.
    * MakeUrlSnapshot will not work with IIS and windows anonymous access. 
    * @param String $url - url of a file with $wgScriptPath as the prefix.
    * NOTE: It is important that url begins with $wgScriptPath.  
   function copyUrlAsFile($url) {
        global $IP;

        $this->mkdir( "{$this->dest}/misc" );
        $destName = urldecode( basename( $url ) );
        $destPath = "{$this->dest}/misc/$destName"; 
        if ( !file_exists( $destPath ) ) {  
            //Replace scriptPath with $IP.  
            //Make sure to replace only the prefix.
            $pattern ='/^'. 
                  str_replace("/","\\/",$this->oldScriptPath) . '/';
            $newUrl = preg_replace($pattern,$IP,$url,1);
        return "{$this->articleBaseUrl}/misc/" . urlencode( $destName );
