    I've been looking for a solution to log into my account, on say YouTube (I've tried many other different web-sites that require a login), through my iPhone application. Here is the code I am trying to use to do so:

    static NSString *url = @"http://www.youtube.com";
    	// create the request
    	NSURLRequest *request =[NSURLRequest requestWithURL:[NSURL URLWithString:url]
    	// create the connection with the request
    	// and start loading the data
    	NSURLConnection *connection=[[NSURLConnection alloc] initWithRequest:request
    	if (connection) {
    		// Create the NSMutableData that will hold
    		// the received data
    		// receivedData is declared as a method instance elsewhere
    		receivedData=[[NSMutableData data] retain];
    	} else {
    		// inform the user that the download could not be made
    	[myWebView loadRequest:request];
    I've implemented all the delegate methods for this request and connection, and all of them except for didReceiveAuthenticationChallenge get called. From what I understand this method does not get called only with synchronous connection.

    I thought that the page I am loading does not through authenticating challenges and that would be the reason for this, but I tried changing the URL directly to the login pages (on different sites) and the result does not change. What is the problem?


    EDIT: The response code I am getting is 200.
