I have done some searching and couldn't find anything similar. So here goes.
My application is using GWT 2.4.0 and GXT 2.2.5 and the environment in
which the application will be used has Active Directory (LDAP) present. So
in order to access an application the user/browser needs to go through the
NTLM negotiation process.
We are attempting to use the 'xsiframe' linker so we can do cross site
scripting (ie. have the HTML page hosted on one server and the JS/server
code on another server).
The application load up correctly when it is deployed, however any attempt
to call a GWT RPC service fails. After tracing, it looks like the RPC is
making the remote service call, but due to the NTLM negotiation the server

I have attempted to use the GWT RPC Plus project, and have managed to get

through the NTLM negotiate process. Finally returning the results to the
My question is, what would I need to do (and how would I go about doing it)
in order to use the same method above for my RPC communication with the
xsiframe linker (ie. attach a form and set the same enctype)?
Thanks for any and all help.
