Is there specific config reqmnts required  w.r.t.
proxy configuration when a Web client running inside
one firewall, say FW1 with a proxy#1, and Jigsaw 
Web server running in another firewall, say FW2 with a
proxy#2, s.t. the client sends the Basic Authentication 
data and the Jigsaw Web Server http server completely 
receives the Basic Auth data for authentication?

E.g., do the client-side FW proxies authenticate the
Basic Auth data in addition to the server proxies
and ultimately the Jigsaw Web Server?
