    Hi Yuval Avishid,

    Nx Witness uses Bearer Authentication by default, and VLC will use Basic Authentication.
    A possible option could be to use Digest Authentication, but I'm not sure VLC support anything else than Basic authentication. I'll check it and let you know later.

    To enable Digest Auth. for a specific user, please check THIS support article.

    Hi Norman - Nx Support,

    VLC seems to support Digest Authentication.
    As you suggested, I enabled Digest Authentication for a specific user, and it worked like a charm!

    Thanks,
    Yuval

    Hi Yuval Avishid,

    I just figured out VLC did support Digest Authentication, but also noticed a bug or limitation in our software or in VLC. We will do some additional

    If uppercase characters are used, authentication fails, but with all lowercase characters, authentication succeeds.

    Hi Norman - Nx Support,

    Yeah, that's true. I struggled with it and it took me a while to figure it out.
    For user names, lowercase is used, and passwords are used as specified.

    Thanks,
    Have a great day,
    Yuval
