Using WLW on a blog protected by http basic authentication RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have a corporate blog on an intranet that require authentication in order to either read or post to the blogs.
    This works fine using a web browser and the scenario is as follows:
    - Connect to the blog URL
    - Browser ask for 1st set of credentials (http basic auth) to access the blog (shared among lots of employees on our intranet)
    - Read the blog
    - Request to Post a new article
    - Web page ask for 2nd set of credentials (personal) in order to access the blog edit page
    - Publish

    Our blogs have an xmlrpc interface (it's wordpress BTW) so  I thought I'd try using WLW instead of the browser to post to our blog.
    The problem is that I need to inform WLW about 2 sets of credentials: one to access the site, one to edit the site How could I do that ?

    I tried to connect using a local proxy and other kind of tricks, but could not find a way to using WLW on our blogs.

    Is this simply possible ?

    Thanks for any help,

  • It does not look like Writer supports authentication in this scenario.
