Description Dave Malcolm 2005-06-08 22:15:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
Upstream gnome bugs 302183 and 306877 report a problem (and a simple fix) when doing NTLM authentication using libsoup (used by evolution-connector package to talk to Exchnage servers).

Usernames of the form DOMAIN\USERNAME fail, due to libsoup getting confused about the domain to supply to the server in the type 3 NTLM message.

There's a simple fix, which should be evaluated for a RHEL4 update.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See upstream bug

A version of the libsoup package for RHEL4 i386 with the fix is downloadable
from here:

This was built in our regular build system, but hasn't been through QA.

Comment 14 Dave Malcolm 2005-09-01 17:45:20 UTC
See also bug #166627, which appears to be a separate problem in the NTLM
authentication code that will randomly cause failures on x86_64, with the same
visible symptoms to the user as this bug (it's a 64-bit cleanliness bug in the
code in libsoup and evolution-connector).
