+Product: Mono: Class Libraries
+Version: 1.0
+OS Details: 
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Wishlist
+Component: CORLIB

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: WebRequest authentication - incompatibility to .NET
+Description of Problem:
+When using the .NET Framework (1.1) on windows, creating a new
+HttpWebRequest and setting its credentials, the default behaviour is to use
+digest authentication (and in fact, it is very difficult to make it use
+basic authentication instead).
+Mono, however, defaults to basic authentication, which can result in a
+problem when working against servers that only do digest authentication.
+This may or may not be a real bug vis-a-vis the definition of the class
+libraries, but it makes porting code from windows to linux difficult.
