Authenticating on a PIX from a java program

Hi,

I am developping a Java application that needs to make http requests frequently in an automated way.

To go out of my LAN, I need to go through a PIX firewall on which user authentication is activated.

Does anybody know a Java library (or another way) that can do that automatically.

There is a java library called HTTPClient that can deal with Proxy Authentication but I am not sure it can work with a PIX firewall.

Can you help me ?

Thanks,

Olivier

Re: Authenticating on a PIX from a java program

You can put a aaa except statement in the PIX for the device that is running your java app. Then this can bypass the authentication altogether. If you can’t do that, try HTTPClient library. I don’t know how it works but the PIX is sending a username/password request via http to your browser. All the client needs to do it fill in those boxes and send it back.
