Oleg Kalnichevski commented on HTTPCLIENT-579:
Well, some bad news. jTDS is licensed under LGPL. There is no way we can take any LGPL licensed code in any form or fashion into a official Apache distribution. Apache license is incompatible with LGPL. There is nothing we can do about it
There is only one option left, though. You should start a new project on Sourceforge or Javaforge and release the code under LGPL. In our turn we can provide a link on our site to this project and include documentation how to plug the NTLMv2 auth module in and configure HttpClient to use it instead of the standard NTLMv1 one

> Hello guys,
> recently I've encouner the problem how to interact with HTTP resourses protected tough security policy allowed to use only NTLMv2 authorization scheme from a java application.
> Earlier I used httpclient to accomplish NTLMv1 authorization, but when I was requested to move to NTLMv2 I was surprised, that httpclient does not support this.
> I've dug all the Internet and found some articles and examples how to implement it, and finally having compiled all this enormous heap of information, I have a couple modified classes from httpclient project, that I'd like to share with you and other users of httpclient.
