SOAP and NTLM Authentication


#1

I’m trying to integrate with Sharepoint Services, and need to connect
to the server using NTLM authentication. I can’t get the following
lines of code to work:

WSDL_URL = ‘http://sharepoint.wavetronix.local/_vti_bin/lists.asmx?WSDL
soap = SOAP::WSDLDriverFactory.new(WSDL_URL).create_rpc_driver

I keep getting a 401, “Unauthorized” error. This code does work:

client = HTTPClient.new
client.set_auth(nil, ‘DOMAIN\username’, ‘password’)
response = client.get(WSDL_URL)

All examples I find show setting authorization properties AFTER the
create_rpc_driver call above. I need to authorize BEFORE so I can
actually access the WSDL file. How do I do this?

The example you give on your blog, like all the others I’ve seen,
assumes the WSDL file is “in the open.” In my case, I have to
authenticate in order to even get to it. Your example creates the
driver first, then adds authentication for subsequent requests. I
can’t even create the driver. The SOAP::WSDLDriverFactory.new() call
fails every time with a 401, “Unauthorized” error.

Also, I’m using the SOAP libraries in Ruby 1.8.6. It’s my
understanding that soap4r was integrated into this version of Ruby. Am
I mistaken?

I’m not sure it’ll be totally helpful. But the tutorial I wrote on
adding extra header using SOAP4R may point you in the right direction.

SOAP4R was integrated in 1.8.6 but is an old and buggy version of it. So
you Hiro recommends you update it and use the newer version (1.5.8)

Cheers,

Since you have shown you can get the WSDL, can’t you just use it
locally when generating your client?

wsdl2ruby --wsdl <local_filename.wsdl> --type client --force

Do NOT use the built-in libraries. Please upgrade to the latest.

The following code seems to be working:

require ‘rubygems’
gem ‘soap4r’
require ‘defaultDriver’

user = ‘DOMAIN\username’
pass = ‘password’

driver = ListsSoap.new
driver.options[‘protocol.http.auth.ntlm’] = [nil, user, pass]
driver.wiredump_file_base = ‘soap.log’

lists = driver.getListCollection(nil)

I used the wsdl2ruby utility and generated the files. I was, however,
hoping to do this dynamically…
