Hi,

I am working on an intranet search engine using java URL and Authenticator class. This is a secured web-site using SSL in http server. I am not able to access the password protected pages. Following is the code:

URL url = new URL("https://*************");
URLConnection connection = url.openConnection();
PasswordAuthentication pa = Authenticator.requestPasswordAuthentication( InetAddress.getByName(connection.getURL().getHost()),
connection.getURL().getPort(), connection.getURL().getProtocol(), null, "Basic");
StringBuffer buf = new StringBuffer("*****************");
buf.append(":");
buf.append("************");
String encoded = new sun.misc.BASE64Encoder().encode(buf.toString().getBytes());
connection.setRequestProperty ("Authorization", "Basic" + encoded);
InputStream content = (InputStream)connection.getInputStream();
BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader (new InputStreamReader (content));
String line;
while ((line = in.readLine()) != null) {
System.out.println(line);
}

Let me know if there is any other alternative

tnx,
Biswajit Biswal

I am not able to access the password protected pages.

What does this mean? Are there any error messages or exceptions? If so, which ones, and in which lines do they occur?

There was no error as such. I was not able to login to the site using the mentioned code. So, everytime I was getting the login page, even though I tried to access the inside pages.

tnx
