Recently upgraded from PAS 1.4 to 1.5.3 (and Zope 2.8.8 to 2.11.2).
I'm having a new problem with basic auth; namely, that basic auth
information is ignored when using wget. Browsers work fine, ZMI asks
for basic auth creds. wget (and lynx, for that matter) doesn't.
For example, I'm doing:
wget --user myuser --password mypassword http://localhost:8080/path/to/thing
I threw a breakpoint in ZPublisher/HTTPRequest.py:275 to see what auth
information was in the request environment; there is none. I also
tried wget http://user:p...@localhost:8080/, just for kicks, but of
course the same problem.
A key datapoint: it works when I pass the --no-auth-challenge option
For all intents and purposes, this is a vanilla install of PAS and
Zope. The plugins that are active appear identical to a Zope 2.8.8/PAS
1.4 instance that /does/ work. Any ideas?
