This article describes how to set up the Yahoo Messenger tool to use only Integrated authentication on your Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server computer.
To set up the Yahoo Messenger tool to use only Integrated authentication on your ISA Server computer, configure Microsoft Internet Explorer on the same computer that you use to run Yahoo Messenger so that the "Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections" feature is enabled:
If you use Internet Explorer instead of Yahoo in a similar way (configured as HTTP 1.0), Internet Explorer sends a keep-alive header in its initial NTLM request. This causes keep-alives to be used all the way, and the NTLM handshake takes place on the same TCP connection. Because of this, an Internet Explorer HTTP 1.0 client works, but Yahoo Messenger does not.
After you enable the "Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections" feature, Yahoo Messenger will pick up this setting, and act like an HTTP 1.1 client instead when it talks to ISA Server. Because keep-alives are the default in HTTP 1.1, Yahoo Messenger and ISA Server will do the whole NTLM handshake on the same TCP connection.
