The error is likely due to NTLM HTTP authentication failing. The only
feature of the PIX itself that could disrupt this is the HTTP fixup.
You can disable this in config mode by entering 'no fixup http 80'.
However, connecting through a PIX running 6.3(3), I run Windows Update
through that URL with the HTTP fixup enabled.
