When building and running the testsuite with --disable-sspi with the
attached patch which is nearly yours but also changing WIN32
preprocessor checks. I get exactly the same results with the patch
installed or removed in a machine which is not networked in any
I'll repeat the same test later on a machine which does belong to a
Windows Domain to verify results there.
But as a first impression I would have expected different results.
NTLM code not doing anything or is Cygwin _so_ clever that it is
actually performing the full translation of the NTLM POSIX stuff to
In both configurations if curl is built with --enable-sspi I get the
