[DeleGate-En] username and password in url
07 Sep 1999 12:58:42 GMT "David Barber" <>

I wonder if anyone can help me figure out how to mount and/or filter a site
that I am having problems with.  When first contacted, the site returns a
Location redirect.  The url given is in a form like
http://username:password@server../login .  If I just use delegate as a
proxy, the remote browser responds to the url properly and at the
appropriate time it uses the username and password to do a
basic-authentication with the remote server.  However, when I mount as /server the browser does not respond appropriately to the
remote server and the user is shown a prompt with a username and password.
I am at a loss as to how to where the problem is and how to filter the
responses or the requests to enable my users to remotely access this site.

If you have any ideas or suggestions, please let me know.  Even if you do
not know what the solution is, it might help if you can tell me how to write
a filter that logs the complete communication between the client and the
server using ftocl and fromsv.  If I can do this, it might shed some light
on what the browser or server are sending and when.

Thanks in advance for your help,

David Barber
