HTTP Negotiate proxy authentication support for applications.

Project description

This has been completely rewritten as of version 1.0.0.

HTTP Negotiate proxy authentication support for applications. This allows applications that do not natively support proxies (SSH, Telnet) using a netcat-like implementation or ones that do not support the Negotiate method of proxy authentication by running a local proxy.


Install the easy way through PyPi:

$ pip install proxy-negotiate

Or alternatively download and build yourself:

$ git clone
$ cd proxy-negotiate
$ python install


You will obviously need to be part of a domain for Negotiate authentication to work or alternatively on Windows, be running the Kerberos for Windows Manager.


A netcat-like implementation for use with programs such as SSH and Telnet:

$ nc-negotiate host port [proxy_host] [proxy_port]

Example of usage with OpenSSH command line:

$ ssh -o ProxyCommand="nc-negotiate %h %p"

Or in your ~/.ssh/config:

    ProxyCommand nc-negotiate %h %p


For application that support proxies but not Negotiate proxy authentication:

$ proxy-negotiate proxy_host proxy_port [listen_host:] [listen_port:8080]
