Re: [Evolution] Basic proxy-auth for Summary items


Thanks for your suggestions. I'll be back at that workplace on
Wednesday, I'll try them and report back.

Best regards,

I'm trying to setup my summary to work behind a proxy that wants

evolution always try to use NTLM auth, and my proxy wants BASIC.

How do I configure the auth-type to BASIC, using gconftool-2 ???

Blah. I think libsoup is buggy, and if the proxy offers NTLM, soup tries
to do NTLM auth to the destination server rather than the proxy.

There's no clean workaround, but you might be able to fake soup out by
changing your username from "charles" (or whatever) to
"charles;AUTH=Basic". But that would break proxy usage outside of

You could also try creating a file ".souprc" in your homedir and adding:

      proxy-uri: http://username;AUTH=Basic:password hostname:port/

but I think that will only work if you don't have a proxy configured in
the control center, because otherwise that information would override
the souprc info.
