An Attemptis being made to forward a request to an SSL URL through a proxy server.  This proxy requires a username and password for passthrough.

The proxy returns a message that the request is being blocked because the authorization is not being attempted. The message being returned:

Your credentials could not be authenticated: "Credentials are missing.". You will not be permitted access until your credentials can be verified.
