Hi Kevin - this is very frustrating. I thought we'd finally sorted this out once
and for all. Not sure if your using NK4 or the preview of NK5 but either way the
base line is that http-client library hasn't been changed for some time.
As a pre-emptive measure I've created a build of the http-client module using the
very latest Apache HTTP Client 4.1.2. Please can you download this module and swap
the entry in your modules.xml to point to this jar instead...
In the Apache client changelogs there is one reported error with NTLM that has been
fixed. But no mention of any difference between XP and Win7, and the error looks
unlikely to be related. But still, please give this latest build a try.
In the meantime, it would also be valuable to see exactly what Windows 7 is reporting
- the reason for the parse error is that the http client is coming back with a page from the proxy but not the resource we expected.
So can you please take the following steps.
- Turn on the visualizer
- Try to manually sync apposite http://localhost:1060/tools/apposite/admin/ (click the synchronize button).
- Turn off the visualizer and save the synchronize request trace and send it to us so
we can take a look at the details.
Like you I really though these Windows NTLM proxy issues were behind us. Certainly
the apache library claims to support a wide-range of NTLM specifications. Maybe there's
a new spec in Windows7 - MS don't publish a spec for NTLM so who knows?
