Hopefully this is the correct channel for such a question and my quest for further knowledge.
I've currently built a significant platform which allows clients to communicate with our
API, which in turns allows "items" to be pushed to a print queue.
Most third party developers and app users have no problem consuming the
API, and I only assume this is because they
basic auth outside a
We have one client, that appears to be locked behind a
proxy of sorts, which prevents the consumption of a particular
endpoint. I'm regrettably faced with the 407 - Proxy Authentication Required.
I'm very keen to understand is this something the end user (client) should resolve by adjusting proxy security settings (if needed) or a developer problem?
I'm also keen to understand what is actually happening? End user behind
proxy calls the
API, to try and authenticate via
basic auth, and then tries to authenticate via proxy-authenticate?
Ideally not looking for a fix but more knowledge on what is happening, so I can fix myself.
