Authorization issue when using Ants

Hello Joe,

Thanks for your interest in ANTS Load. The curent version does not support Windows Authentication, only Basic. When you try to record a page that requests an NTLM (Windows) login by sending a 401 Unauthorized page, the script recorder's built-in proxy can't go through the three-request process to perform the NTLM authorization and you're left with the original 401 page.

The only way to get the script recorder to work in this case is to set the authentication method to Basic.

    There is a patch available to implement NTLM in ANTS Load's test scripts (note it still is not supported in the script recording) and full support for Windows Authentication will be available in the next version of ANTS Load.

    If you are interested in the fix, please contact us at [email protected]
