Talk:Chaining WebScarab onto another proxy

How do I specify the user name and password for an authenticated Proxy?

I am running behind a firewall/proxy that requires authentication. There is no UI for entering a user name and password required for the chained proxy.

I looked at the source code to see if it is a feature that is supported, but undocumented. It appears to not be an option, however WebScarab uses the jcifs library so it can do an authenticated NTLM proxy connection if it was coded.

Take a look at the Tools -> Credentials dialog. There is an option to "Ask when required", which will tell WebScarab to respond to any authentication requests, rather than passing that through to the browser.
