What is boils down to is He as access but the job running on the AS400
does not pass HIS credentials, or any integrated Windows credentials
that the iPrism requires. Bet if they traced the HTTPAPI they would see
the iPrism logon window. They should build that into the application to
get through the iPrism proxy buy providing a valid logon when the iPrism
window pops up. This goes back to the Who I stated earlier.

I agree with what you're saying Chris. However, in this circumstance,
Adam has stated that he can access the site with a browser on his PC,
but he can't access it with HTTPAPI from his RPG program.

To me, that implies that iPrism is blocking the System i, but is not
blocking his PC. Consequently, software running on his PC should work.
Thus his attempt at using VBA.

Frankly, their security model makes no sense. Block the i, but don't
block PCs? Umm... which one do you think is more likely to get infected
by a virus on a rogue web site? Gee... think about it.
