Description peavo 2013-11-16 02:27:30 PST
After I've made a successful basic authentication, the credentials are not reused for later requests.

In the CFNetwork port, this is solved by first checking if credentials exists for a given url in a new request.
If credentials are found, basic authentication is tried first.

Also, when a 401 response is received, the first thing the CFNetwork port does, is to check if m_user/m_pass is set (which means no authentication method is given in the request).
If so, the m_user/m_pass credential is sent in the request to the server.

This can be done in the same way for the Curl version.
