Why do I encounter the error message "HTTP: 407 - proxy authentication required" when replaying a BDF script via an NTLM-authenticated proxy?

Why do I encounter the error message "HTTP: 407 - proxy authentication required" when replaying a BDF script via an NTLM-authenticated proxy?

 

There is a known issue in SilkPerformer 2007 which causes virtual users to fail when accessing a secure (HTTPs/SSL) application via an NTLM-authenticated proxy server. The problem can specifically occur when replaying secure traffic through an ISA proxy server that uses NTLM authentication. For example you may find that after specifying a Proxy Server in the SilkPerformer Active Profile Settings and then using the function WebSetProxyAuthNtlm function that you are able to successfully replay a script that access a non-secure (HTTP) web site but cannot access any secure web sites (HTTPs). This can lead to the following error message occurring during replay:

WebPageUrl(HTTP: 407 - proxy authentication required, RespHdrAuthNTLM)
