About HTTP 407 Response

The HTTP 407 response action sends an HTTP 407 Proxy Authentication Required page to capture HTTP Basic or Negotiate authentication. The HTTP 407 Response action provides three branches: Basic, Negotiate, and fallback. Typically, a basic type of authentication follows on the Basic branch and a Kerberos Auth action follows on the Negotiate branch. An HTTP 407 response action provides these configuration elements and options:
