The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 793
WWW-Authenticate header field is missing
Last modified: 2003-11-21 22:13:38 UTC
When you go to SWAT page, it responds with
HTTP/1.0 401 Authorization Required
WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="SWAT"
When you enter bad username/password, you get response:
HTTP/1.0 401 Bad Authorization
This response is violating RFC1945. According to RFC all 401 responses must
include WWW-Authenticate field (section 9.4).
This prevents users of browser links-2.1pre14 from logging into SWAT when they
enter bad password first time.
