Subject: Error 401: You are not authorized to perform this operation
Feedback Type: Problem
Product Area: Domino Web Access (DWA)
Technical Area: Error Message
Platform: Windows XP client
Release: Notes and Domino 8 - GOLD
Reproducible: Always

I have problem with restricted web service. When I set up unrestricted authentication in the database, I mean that Anonymous has editor access to the database and web service doesn't have ticked Run as web user in properties of database, then I can work with the web service without any limitations and problems. However, when I set ACL that Anonymous is not allowed and tick in web service Run as web user than I have problem to work with the web service methods. Domino server sends me a message "Error 401:You are not authorized to perform this operation". For testing the web service, I'm using soapUI and eclipse alternatively.

The next step which I have done was that I started Domino Web Server Log and there I can see that I authenticate with the server when I'm sending ?WSDL url to server, but when I call ?OpenWebService then the log doesn't show name of Remote User, but instead keeps ip address of the remote computer.

We have tried SSO, but it didn't work, as eclipse and neither soapUI know how to process its header.

I have checked the test clients, but haven't found any useful properties to set up.

Has anyone gotten any experience with this. I just want to mention that to solve this problem is a high priority for me right now, so I'll appreciate any suggestions or information.
