What errors are you seeing?  There are a couple of known issues with the NtlmHttpURLConnection (which I've been meaning to look at in more detail for awhile now).  POST requests appear to cause problems, and that would be a pretty big show-stopper for XML-RPC.  Also, many XML-RPC clients prefill the "Authorization" header rather than handling the 401 (i.e., they attach the HTTP Basic base-64 string to all requests instead of waiting until the first Unauthorized response).  This would likely cause conflicts on either their side or ours.
