    Widget http Basic authentication

    I m developing an application which connects to server and using Basic authentication I m authorizing user.
    I m using WRT Kit and its Ajax object to perform http operations.
    It works properly on Nokia N97 but for example on nokia E52 there are the following problem.
    As a password I send data which length is 32 but on this device 3 last chars are just cut and server receives only 29 bytes. (On N97 the same code works properly and server receives whole password)
    On nokia E66 this Basic just doesnt work and there is a prompt to enter login and password.
    Are there any problemd with Basic on 9.3 and 9.2 devices ? or am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks in advance

    I tried with E52 with latest firmware and in my device 32 characters long password works. What firmware are you using?

    The E66 is another story. It has very old browser compared to E52 or N97. That's why it is unlike that basic authentication will ever work on that device.
