Subject RE: Firewall tunneling, question still open !

I haven't looked at more recent JVMs, but as of JDK 1.1, you could not get
the JVM to do 407 based HTTP proxy authentication. I think you have to use
somebody elses HTTP client. I imagine there is a way to hook XMLRPC to it.
There are several HTTP clients out there, but I don't know which one would
be easiest to use. Sorry.

Thanks Eric for your fast answer, but I knew already about that system 
properties stuff... You can only set the hostname and port of the proxy 
server through them, but you can't set the login/password.

So, the question is still open !
