konqueror proxy authentication regression with kde4.2
Last modified: 2009-04-27 13:55:12 EDT
Description of problem:
Since "upgrading" to kde 4.2 konqueror no longer handles the NTLM challenge from the corporate proxy server, preventing all external web access.
Akregator is likewise borked. This is a serious regression from the last kde 4.1 package.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Attempt to access any non-local URL with konqueror.
Proxy replies with "407 Authentication Required", and konqueror stops there.
I can provide tcpdump output if it helps.
On receipt of the 407 konqueror should try to find a suitable username/password in an available wallet or prompt the user for such, and retry with that, satisfying the proxy and allowing the connection to proceed.
The proxy is specified with "Configure - Konqueror/Proxy/Manual specify the proxy settings", which have been checked and verified to work with firefox, same as they did before the upgrade. However using the auto-proxy url produces the same breakage.
I have tried clearing kwallet, reinitializing with known good passwords, restarting etc, to no effect. I have cleared every cache I can find.
Best to report to bugs.kde.org. That's the best way to get upstream developer attention.
Thank you for the bug report. This issue needs to be addressed by the upstream developers. Please submit a report at http://bugs.kde.org. You are requested to add the bugzilla link here for tracking purposes. Please make sure the bug isn't already in the upstream bug tracker before filing it.
Reported as https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=184588, where it is claimed to be fixed in KDE 4.2.1. Any chance of an update for F10? This is pretty debilitating to those cursed with corporate firewalls.
4.2.1 has already been pushed as an update for Fedora 10. It went out to the stable updates on Monday evening. Does it fix the issue for you?
Good to hear, but the local mirrors are not that quick. I will report back when I have the packages.
Its been more than 30days since last update going to close as WORKSFORME. Please reopen if the issue returns.
