Re: HTTP Status-Code=401 (Unauthorized) error in LoadRunner ApplicationType:Appian

I have recorded the scripts through loadrunner and while replay the scripts i am getting the 401 error.

While replay it suggests me to provide web_set_user, I used following statement before the specific request.

web_set_sockets_option("SSL_VERSION", "2&3");    
    web_set_user("Domain\\username", "password", "locahost:port");

Error -26630: HTTP Status-Code=401 (Unauthorized) getting an error while replay the scripts.

Run Time Settings:

Use cusom proxy:Use proxy server details-selected and Use same proxy server for all the protocols-Checked.

Also provided authentication details from the "Authentication" tab

Can you pls suggest.

Hi JS, 

have you try to select "Use WinInet replay instead of Sockets (Windows only)" from section "Internet Protocol -> Preferences" from Runtime Settings? Try it and let me know if this simple suggestion can help you with the issue.
