Hello Maxim,

Many thanks for ur timely reply!

But I am still not quite understand about term "connection-based". I
checked with wireshark again, even NTLM auth schema, it did not just use
one socket to transport the whole data, it also uses several sockets to
transfer a HTML page in parallel. So it works just like Digest
Authentication, at least, in the auth process, they are the same. So I
am totally stuck in here, where is the session info and how does Win NT
keep them? And if what I have noticed was true, why Digest
Authentication worked but not NTLM?
