So much for theory. Using Sun JDK/JRE 1.4.2 on Windows on the client side, I
wouldn't have to bother with this if we and our customers wouldn't have any
problems. If Sun's JRE would support this natively I would expect it to work.
But as you can see.. :-(

Ran the script but still it does not work. The response HTTP header now looks
HTTP/1.1 401 Access Denied
