    Transport button you get the following error:

Problem conclusion

  • In Rational Integration Tester 8.7, version 4 of the Apache HTTP
    client is enabled automatically, meaning that NTLMv2
    authentication is supported correctly.  Note that this
    functionality is available in version 8.6.0.2 but must be
    enabled with a -D flag on start-up.  In version 8.7.0 it is
    enabled by default.
