Description (last modified by stp)
In the http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/XmlRpcPlugin documentation it is said that
The xmlrpclib.ServerProxy client - as demonstrated in the following examples - will not work with a Digest-based HTTP authentication: you need to set up a Basic HTTP authentication on server side to make the examples work.
But it appears that the digest authentification is working fine for me, using the tracd standalone server.
I am using a local tracd server launched with the following command line :
python <path to tracd>\tracd --port 8000 --auth=trac,<path to my digest file>\users_htdigest.txt,trac <path to the project>\trac
When I attempted to add a task repository in Eclipse with Mylyn (using XML RPC plugin) it worked, and so when I added a task.
The only plugins that I have in Trac are:
- Trac 0.10.4
- tracwebadmin 0.1.2dev-r6060
- tracxmlrpc 0.1
