Hi Guys,

I have a problem.

I am using xmlrpc client for accessing the API of a particular product and for using the url "" its asking for authentication. If i use "http://<username>:<password>" its throwing an error "Unauthorized".

One more thing is before using this URL i need to cross the proxy and for that i am using httpclient and i am successful.

Please someone help me how to solve this issue.
