IIS Reverse Proxy and Basic Authentication


we've currently put a WebAS 6.40 serving a BSP Application in our Appl-DMZ. For the access via Web the IIS Reverse Proxy is used, which works fine as long as you use a service for which a user is provided (in SICF). But if you don't provide a user in the service (in order to debug the BSP Application) you have to authenticate yourself using Basic Authentication (Browser Popup) which does not work (the popup returns and returns ...)

I' ve browsed the forums and it seems that the IIS Reverse Proxy does not support (the forwarding) of Basic Authentication "requests".

So my question, does someone exactly know if the IIS Reverse proxy supports Basic Authentication or not ?

    Hello Markus,

    1. have you checked out Alon Weinstein's Weblog <a href="/people/sap.user72/blog/2005/02/23/the-reverse-proxy-series--part-2-iis-as-a-reverse-proxy">The Reverse Proxy Series -- Part 2: IIS as a reverse-proxy</a>?

    2. Is the IIS a must? Can you give Apache or SAP Web Dispatcher a try.
