Status

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.

More Information

The error occurs because the proxy credentials are not cached correctly when they go through a secure connection in this situation.

Steps to Reproduce the Behavior

  1. Set up a proxy server.
  2. Create a test account name, and then create a password that has permission to use the proxy server.
  3. Create a Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC) CHtmlView class application, and then implement the IAuthenticate and the IServiceProvider interfaces in a custom control site. The IServiceProvider interface permits the Web browser control to discover the IAuthenticate interface.

    The following example code is specific to Microsoft Foundation Classes 7.0:

    MyOleControlSite.h
    #include <afxocc.h>
    #include <afxhtml.h>

    class CHtmlControlSite : public COleControlSite
    {
    public:
    CHtmlControlSite(COleControlContainer* pParentWnd);
    ~CHtmlControlSite();

    CHtmlView* GetView() const;

    BEGIN_INTERFACE_PART(DocHostUIHandler, IDocHostUIHandler)
    STDMETHOD(ShowContextMenu)(DWORD, LPPOINT, LPUNKNOWN, LPDISPATCH);
    STDMETHOD(GetHostInfo)(DOCHOSTUIINFO*);
    STDMETHOD(ShowUI)(DWORD, LPOLEINPLACEACTIVEOBJECT,
    LPOLECOMMANDTARGET, LPOLEINPLACEFRAME, LPOLEINPLACEUIWINDOW);
    STDMETHOD(HideUI)(void);
    STDMETHOD(UpdateUI)(void);
    STDMETHOD(EnableModeless)(BOOL);
    STDMETHOD(OnDocWindowActivate)(BOOL);
    STDMETHOD(OnFrameWindowActivate)(BOOL);
    STDMETHOD(ResizeBorder)(LPCRECT, LPOLEINPLACEUIWINDOW, BOOL);
    STDMETHOD(TranslateAccelerator)(LPMSG, const GUID*, DWORD);
    STDMETHOD(GetOptionKeyPath)(OLECHAR **, DWORD);
    STDMETHOD(GetDropTarget)(LPDROPTARGET, LPDROPTARGET*);
    STDMETHOD(GetExternal)(LPDISPATCH*);
    STDMETHOD(TranslateUrl)(DWORD, OLECHAR*, OLECHAR **);
    STDMETHOD(FilterDataObject)(LPDATAOBJECT , LPDATAOBJECT*);
    END_INTERFACE_PART(DocHostUIHandler)

    DECLARE_INTERFACE_MAP()
    };

    class CMyOleControlSite : public CHtmlControlSite
    {
    public:
    CMyOleControlSite(COleControlContainer *pCnt = NULL):CHtmlControlSite(pCnt) {}

    BEGIN_INTERFACE_PART(Authenticate, IAuthenticate)

    STDMETHODIMP Authenticate(
    HWND __RPC_FAR *phwnd,
    LPWSTR __RPC_FAR *pszUsername,
    LPWSTR __RPC_FAR *pszPassword);

    END_INTERFACE_PART(Authenticate)


    BEGIN_INTERFACE_PART(ServiceProvider, IServiceProvider)
    STDMETHODIMP QueryService(REFGUID guid, REFIID iid, LPVOID * ppv);
    END_INTERFACE_PART(ServiceProvider)

    DECLARE_INTERFACE_MAP();
    };
    MyOleControlSite.cpp
    #include "stdafx.h"
    #include "MyOleControlSite.h"

    BEGIN_INTERFACE_MAP(CMyOleControlSite, CHtmlControlSite)
    INTERFACE_PART(CMyOleControlSite, IID_IAuthenticate, Authenticate)
    INTERFACE_PART(CMyOleControlSite, IID_IServiceProvider, ServiceProvider)
    END_INTERFACE_MAP()

    /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
    // CMyOleControlSite: IAthenticate::IUnknown methods

    ULONG CMyOleControlSite::XAuthenticate::AddRef()
    {
    METHOD_PROLOGUE(CMyOleControlSite, Authenticate)
    return pThis->ExternalAddRef();
    }

    ULONG CMyOleControlSite::XAuthenticate::Release()
    {
    METHOD_PROLOGUE(CMyOleControlSite, Authenticate)
    return pThis->ExternalRelease();
    }

    {

    // add code from next step

    return S_OK;

    }

    ULONG CMyOleControlSite::XServiceProvider::Release()
    {
    METHOD_PROLOGUE(CMyOleControlSite, ServiceProvider)
    return pThis->ExternalRelease();
    }

    HRESULT CMyOleControlSite::XServiceProvider::QueryInterface(REFIID riid, void **ppvObj)
    {
    METHOD_PROLOGUE(CMyOleControlSite, ServiceProvider)
    HRESULT hr = (HRESULT)pThis->ExternalQueryInterface(&riid, ppvObj);
    return hr;
    }

    STDMETHODIMP CMyOleControlSite::XServiceProvider::QueryService(REFGUID sid, REFIID iid, LPVOID * ppv)
    {
    METHOD_PROLOGUE(CMyOleControlSite, ServiceProvider)

    if (sid == IID_IAuthenticate || iid == IID_IAuthenticate) {
    return (HRESULT)pThis->ExternalQueryInterface(&iid, ppv);
    } else {
    *ppv = NULL;
    }

    return E_NOINTERFACE;
    }
    ProxyTestView.h
    class CProxyTestView : public CHtmlView
    {
    ...
    BOOL CreateControlSite(COleControlContainer* pContainer,
    COleControlSite** ppSite, UINT nID, REFCLSID clsid);
    ProxyTestView.cpp
    BOOL CProxyTestView::CreateControlSite(COleControlContainer* pContainer, 
    COleControlSite** ppSite, UINT nID, REFCLSID clsid)
    {
    ASSERT(ppSite != NULL);
    *ppSite = new CMyOleControlSite(pContainer);
    return TRUE;
    }
  4. In the implementation of the IAuthenticate interface, provide a user name and a password, as shown in the following example:
    STDMETHODIMP CMyOleControlSite::XAuthenticate::Authenticate( 
    HWND __RPC_FAR *phwnd,
    LPWSTR __RPC_FAR *pszUsername,
    LPWSTR __RPC_FAR *pszPassword)
    {
    METHOD_PROLOGUE(CMyOleControlSite, Authenticate)

    CString strUsername = "Altoid/LocalAltoid";
    CString strPassword = "Test123";

    WCHAR *wszDlgUser = (WCHAR *) CoTaskMemAlloc(255 * sizeof(WCHAR));
    WCHAR *wszDlgPassword = (WCHAR *) CoTaskMemAlloc(255 * sizeof(WCHAR));
    MultiByteToWideChar(GetACP(), 0, (const char*)strUsername, -1, wszDlgUser, 255);
    MultiByteToWideChar(GetACP(), 0, (const char*)strPassword, -1, wszDlgPassword, 255);
    *pszUsername = wszDlgUser;
    *pszPassword = wszDlgPassword;
    *phwnd = NULL;

    return S_OK;
    }
  5. In the OnInitialUpdate function, move to the "about:blank" page:
    void CProxyTestView::OnInitialUpdate()
    {
    CHtmlView::OnInitialUpdate();
    Navigate2(_T("about:blank"),NULL,NULL);
    }
  6. Add a menu item, and then add a handler to move to a secure URL, as shown in the following example:
    void CProxyTestView::OnActionTest()
    {
    Navigate2(_T("https://www.etrade.com"),NULL,NULL);
    }
  7. Build and then test the project. You see that the page cannot be found. If you modify the page so that it moves to a non-secure URL, or if you visit the secure URL after you visit the non-secure URL, the move succeeds.
