Claimer: I know way too much about Basic Authentication (1)

I'm assuming url credentials like aren't relevant.

LWP's GET -eSUd is a good debugging aid here. It'll show you the basic headers to compare to your own.

Another idea: put up your own server and watch the requests (or proxy your proxy to see what it's trying to do)

(1) I tried to write a module that would fallback to using the basic credentials as a pseudo-cookie if a client had cookies switched off. Many 401's and 30x's later I discovered that it wasn't practically possible if you want to support Mozilla and changing user(IE works though). "wasn't practically possible" is a big call, let's say I couldn't do it.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
