HTTP Monitor

I am using the HTTP Monitor to check the status of the front end of several applications. On one application it is always reported as down saying:

"Access denied, authorization failed. HTTP 401. Authentication required. The remote server returned an error: (401) Unauthorized."

The application itself requires credentials to access. However there is a page that should not require any authentication. I have tried monitoring the URL using an external node and I get another error, if not the same one. When I try to access the webpage from outside of the internal network it cannot find the page.

I have no idea why it cannot see the page.

The HTTP User Experience Monitor does not support JavaScript so there could be something going on with the page you're not seeing with a JavaScript capable browser. Try disabling JavaScript in your Web Browser and see how the site/page behaves. I'd also recommend you download our Synthetic End User Monitor which was specifically designed for monitoring web applications.

It wasn't a problem for JavaScript. It was an authentication error. I didn't realize that the application automatically pulled credentials from my login when I accessed the page on a web browser. So once I used those as credentials it worked fine.
