Is there any easier way to use the TCP Sockets for this NTLM HTTP Tunnel in iOS?
No. In theory you should be be able to do this using
CFHTTPAuthenticationbut this won’t work for NTLM. NTLM needs to know the URL for which this is a response and the routine to set that is not public API (r. 6980095).
And yeah, that’s a very low Radar number. This has been an issue since at least 2006 )-:

We would try to use some other third pary library in C then to carry out this as OS does not provide any support and hope to get this working as we know the proxy URL and the end Webserver we are trying to reach via proxy.
