AW: Problems using robots with authentication

Hello everyone,

I read the article "Prerequisites" in the documentation:

Polygraph SSL support is based on the OpenSSL library. A recent version of the library is required to compile Polygraph. We have tested with OpenSSL versions 0.9.6g and 0.9.7b. The presence of OpenSSL is determined at ./configure time. Please check that ./configure actually found SSL library and headers if you install Polygraph and want SSL support:

    checking for CRYPTO_lock in -lcrypto... yes
    checking for SSL_connect in -lssl... yes
    checking for openssl/ssl.h... yes
    checking for openssl/err.h... yes
    checking for openssl/rand.h... yes

Eh, I don't get these lines when I call the script. I assume that the script was modified, but the documentation not.

One remark: I only want NTLM authentication and not HTTPS benchmarking.

Betreff: Problems using robots with authentication

Hello everyone,

I have the same problem that ufa faced at the end of October:
I use NTLM authentication and get the message assertion failed: 'false'

from the polygraph-client program. After the first time I received that message I included the following line in my PGL file:

Robot robot = {
        pconn_use_lmt = const(2147483647);

But I still get the same message. I read something in Dmitry response about OpenSSL. The OpenSSL package ('openssl') is installed on that Ubuntu machine I'm currently using. But I'm not sure if polygraph was compiled with or without SSL. Is there a way to test it? Or what do I have to do to make sure that polygraph compiles with SSL support?
