Problem this snippet solves:

NTLM Authenticated Proxy External Monitor

How to use this snippet:

This monitor is used to monitor the availability of a web page through a NTLM authenticated proxy.

The default HTTP monitor relies on receiving a 401 Authenticate message to trigger the NTLM handshake, proxies respond with a 407 Proxy Authenticate message instead, which causes the monitor to fail.

Set the following variable: URI - The requested host/page to send the request to. (e.g. www.host.com/page1 or https://www.host.com/page.html) USER - Proxy Username PASS - Proxy Password RECV - Receive String to look for
