    v1 v2  
    1414A more correct solution would be to figure out in advance if the proxy will be handling the authentication itself or if it will forward the challenge to the client, and set the authentication capabilities accordingly. But that's just a lot harder than making sure that both proxy and client have the same capabilities.

     16Note: the python client can support multiple authentication requests, asking the user via a dialog if necessary, whereas the html5 client only has support for a single username+password input. So unless they are using identical values, only the proxy or the server can use authentication.. not both.
