This is Apache response to the initial request. Looks alright. Was this
sniffed at the server or the client? Did the user agent prompt for
username/password as response to this?

Was this before or after the response above? If after, something is wrong as
it should include an Authenticate header.

Again, go into Internet Explorer's advanced preferences and disable
"friendly error messages", so that you can see what really is going on.
