    XMLHttpRequest Issue: Unable to pull json from server that requires digest auth


    I am working on a web app that should pull json asynchronously from my web server. I am using XMLHttpRequest for the same, and the web server has been configured for digest authentication!

    var xmlhttp = new XMLHttpRequest();
    xmlhttp.open("GET", url, true, userName, password);

    The app is working fine on my PC browser, and the simulator! However the same isn't working on N8 and the error that i am getting on N8 is 400, bad request!

    Also note that when i open the url in nokia browser, there also it keeps on asking for username/password and doesn't work?

    As a test, I did try loading json from another server that did not require authentication and it worked fine!

    Looks like the digest authentication is causing some issue, and it is something i cannot do away with!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Satish and welcome to forum.

    I tested this around a bit and its should work after you have manually entered username and password to the dialog.
    Testing was done by using just a standard Apache digest authentication and fetching a text file from the protected directory.

    What is the browser version on your N8?
