Does anyone know if it's possible to set up a content source to index a site that uses browser based login?
I have tryed a few things and can't seem to get it to work, including having the username / password part of the URL for the start address but SharePoint strips it out.
The error I get is 'Access is denied' however the default content access account has full permissions to the site.
Enviroment: SharePoint Enterprise 2010
The web application that we want SharePoint to index is hosted on Apache using Web Server Authentication. When we add the username and password of the content access account to the URL and use the browser to navigate to it, it logs in fine. However when we set up the content source to use the same URL, the username and password are removed from the path and SharePoint fails to authenticate. Sample URL: http://Username:Password@siteurl
