Can someone tell me if ASP.NET is meant to authenticate against non-IIS servers? I am trying to authenticate via WCF REST v2
Basic authentication is an RFC standard but it seems to me that ASP.NET only performs authentication against IIS.
When I try to authenticate against tomcat server, it fails. My research seems to indicate that ASP.NET only perform basic auth against IIS.
I want to conenct to a java based server using Basic Auth and then pull data from it.
Can someone shed some light on this?

I tried svcutil tool to auto generate the proxy and config file using the wsdl file. Now I have the config file with "BasicHttpBinding" . I have made minor additions like security mode,client credentials(according to wsdl). When I try to execute the app,
it fails and I get the following error message:
The HTTP request is unauthorized with client authentication scheme 'Anonymous'. The authentication header received from the server was 'Basic realm="DBI"'.

Does anyone know of a C# code sample demonstrating WCF REST services and console test client with OperationContracts (GET and POST) implementing mutiple paramaters using BASIC authentication? Also, perhaps, using Fiddler as a test client as well? I have searched high and low for something like this, but have not had any success.
