Re: 505 HTTP Version not supported

Thanks Marc


I too discovered that the encodedUsername was incorrect, but have not had time to return and fix the issue using the Service Reference.  


I found working code using the proxy classes (and now dealing with all the name collisions, but that's my problem to deal with).


I have to agree that a bad username should be responded to with something more like "Not Authorized" rather than "Unsupported HTTP version"  It is a shame that misleading messages get passed on.

Re: 505 HTTP Version not supported

Great investigating folks! Could you let me know what values were send as the encoded username that resulted in the error? A generalized generic example should be fine.


I've experienced sending an incorrect encoded username in the past (sending BAS vs AD encoded name) without this error (I received a 401), so it could be new or a different scenario.


I agree we need to get this fixed and if we can get a bug logged in JIRA (linked in my sig) with the above info I will make sure to get it in front of dev.

Goodbye everybody!
