Callback

The 'callback' parameter specifies a function which will be called when the operation completes (or an error is encountered). If the 'callback' parameter is not specified, then the method will block and will not return until the operation completes (or an error is encountered).

The callback for the getPassword([callback]) method is defined as:

function(err, data){ }

'err' is the error that occurred. If there was no error, then 'err' is 'null'.

'data' is the value returned by the method.

The callback for the setPassword([callback]) method is defined as:

function(err){ }

'err' is the error that occurred. If there was no error, then 'err' is 'null'.

'err' has 2 properties which hold detailed information:

err.code
err.message

Remarks

This property contains a password if authentication is to be used. If AuthScheme is set to HTTP Basic Authentication, The User and Password are Base64 encoded and the result is put in the Authorization config setting in the form "Basic [encoded-user-password]".

If AuthScheme is set to HTTP Digest Authentication, the User and Password properties are used to respond to the HTTP Digest Authentication challenge from the server.

If AuthScheme is set to NTLM, NTLM authentication will be attempted. If AuthScheme is set to NTLM and User and Password are empty, the class will attempt to authenticate using the current user's credentials.
