BSC authentication

Post by luckyj13 » Tue Sep 24, 2013 3:49 pm

Hi,
I am getting ready to create a .net wrapper for the bcs, but I am having a very difficult time getting past the authentication.
has anyone tried to connect with a non Browser web request and get past the 401.
I have tried several things to handle the basic html 1.0 authentication, but everything I have tried so far still returns a 401 to me.

It's a little particular about how it works.

Try this:

Dim request As HttpWebRequest = Nothing
request = HttpWebRequest.Create(YourURL & Process)
request.KeepAlive = False
request.Timeout = 6000
request.Method = method
request.PreAuthenticate = True
request.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
request.Credentials = New NetworkCredential(txtUSERNAME.Text, txtUSERPASS.Text)
request.ProtocolVersion = HttpVersion.Version10

Dim response As HttpWebResponse = request.GetResponse()
If response.StatusCode = HttpStatusCode.OK Then
Dim responseStream As StreamReader = New StreamReader(response.GetResponseStream())
responseData = responseStream.ReadToEnd()
End If

response.Close()

Let me know if you still having issues and I'll send you the whole function.

Regards

Cool, by the way, the ContentType listed in my previous post is the one I use for the "GET" method. For the "POST" method I use:
request.ContentType = "text/html".
