We found that it is a problem with bad performance of NTLM authentication only
It occurs not only with JAVA pages but also with other types of content.
Situation improved since we increased values of NTLM cache timeout and
"cache authenticated user" time interval in NTLM-Agent.
Just one more thing:
java apps can't handle the 407 for transparent auth neither can they forward an auth prompt the proxy may display to the actual client (browser)
it is often beneficial to exclude certain user agents from running any authentication rules - mind the consequences
I'm beginning to see more issues with Mcafee WebGateway and JAVA URL sites. I upgraded to 188.8.131.52.0 hoping this will resolve my problems - but no success. Anyone else having these issues??
Java site that requires a username\ password time out or simply displays a blank page.
Checking the Access Logs , I see "authentication failed" .
