NTLM proxy authentication credentials

Dear Subversion developers,

using svn-1.6.6 on Windows Server 2003, I experience the same problem as described by Yann Eads at


(the original thread at the TSVN mailing list is at

Unfortunately I got not reply to my post to the users list, so I repeat the message here. ;-)

In summary, proxy authentication via NTLM fails, because even though the proxy credentials are
properly specified in the "server" config file, i.e. like

> [global]
> http-proxy-host = ...
> http-proxy-port = ...
> http-proxy-username = ...
> http-proxy-password = ...

these credential are not used in the NTLM replies (but instead those of the Windows user login).

Anything that can be done about it?
I'd be very grateful for your help.

Thank you very much and best regards,

PS: I was able to come up with a work-around, using http://cntlm.sourceforge.net/
