1. Download Fiddler.
2. Start Fiddler. It has to be running for the workaround to succeed.
a) Select Tools -> Fiddler Options -> Gateway, and ensure that the "Use System Proxy" is selected. This makes Fiddler route all connections through the existing proxy server. If it is set to something else, change the setting and restart Fiddler. Alternatively, the client may have to manually set the proxy server URL/port in this page.
c) In the Rules menu, turn on the 'Automatically Authenticate' option. This makes Fiddler negotiate the authentication with the proxy server.
d) If users are using HTTPS connections, change the settings in the 'HTTPS' options page.
3. In FME / Data Interop, change the WFS reader proxy settings, as displayed:
Proxy Address: 127.0.0.1
Proxy Port: 8888
Leave the proxy username/password fields blank.
This makes FME use Fiddler as its proxy server, which in turn connects to the existing proxy server, and Fiddler takes care of the authentication.
