The HTTP auth methods do not work #17

I just tried this lib and I cannot seem to get the AUTH_HTTP* methods to work. Any ideas what might be wrong?

I keep getting a 401 error and I tried the PASSWORD and the TOKEN method with no success. Has HTTP support been removed? I cannot seem to find any record of it...

In my case AUTH_HTTP_PASSWORD works fine.

@zanmoskotevc make sure the action(s) you're trying to do after authentication are indeed correct and/or allowed in the given auth context.. the authentication method itself only stores your credentials for the actions taken afterwards (correct my if i'm wrong). So your auth might be correct in terms of credentials, but still a following action might not be allowed, and you'll get a 401..
