Hi Moin users,

I'd like to use the moin xmlrpc functionality to create pages within my
wiki. My setup is the following:

- windows 7
- IIS with windows authentication (NTLM)
- auth = [GivenAuth(strip_windomain=True,autocreate=1)]

Therefore I think I cannot follow the procedures described here
http://moinmo.in/ReimarBauer/xmlrpc because the authentication does not

My idea is now to generate the required auth_token somehow manually. So
here a few questions:

- what exactly is the contents of the auth_token (cookie?)
- maybe it is possible to authenticate against the wiki using urllib2
and storing the cookie for further usage
  of the xmlrpc calls.

If someone has already tried something along that lines I would
appreciate it to get some hints.

Many thanks in advance,
