I was trying to parse a website at my work by using your awesome anemone spider and had to fight a little with ntlm protocol to make it work.
I think other corporate people may experience the problem, hence the following pull request.
Thanls for your great job on anemone by the way !
NTLM parameters in core.rb
Ajout du support NTLM
I was fighting to get Anemone working with IIS using basic auth last week.
Hit same problem with curl today which was fixed by adding --ntlm and I've just realised that NTLM was probably the issue I had with Anemone.
