Netscape 7.x browsers unable to authenticate to BorderManager HTTP Proxy.


BorderManager 3.7

BorderManager 3.6

Netscape 7.x


BorderManager does not support TLS; however TLS is enabled by default in Netscape 7.  If TLS is disabled this seems to resolve the issue.


Netscape 7.x
Edit -> Preferences -> Privacy & Security ->  SSL
There is a check box to enable TLS, deselect the box (by default this is selected).

1. In NetWare® Administrator, select the BorderManager Setup page for the server.
2. Click Authentication Context.
3. Under Notification method---Specify to send authentication notification via HTML form, NOT as a Java applet.
