Thanks Tiemo - so something like...

set the httpHeaders to "Authorization: Basic dXNlcm5hbWU6cGFzc3dvcmQ="

Yes looks like

Will this have the same effect as setting the web proxy (and supplying a
username and password) in the proxies tab of the Network preferences panel
on a Mac?

I don't know what effects else the proxy settings on a mac do have, but with
this settings I get with LC thru a proxy with authentication. And LC doesn't
cathches the proxy settings from the machine (at least not on windows), so
you HAVE to set the proxy settings by yourself in LC - as far as I know...


Thanks Tiemo - I'll give it a try.
