When using http connection, jgit send a unauthenticated request before authenticated one, taking an example from server access log - - [27/Feb/2017:16:55:31 +0800] "GET /tac621git.git/info/refs?service=git-receive-pack HTTP/1.1" 401 401 - admin [27/Feb/2017:16:55:31 +0800] "GET /tac621git.git/info/refs?service=git-receive-pack HTTP/1.1" 200 185 - - [27/Feb/2017:16:55:33 +0800] "GET /tac621git.git/info/refs?service=git-receive-pack HTTP/1.1" 401 401 - admin [27/Feb/2017:16:55:33 +0800] "GET /tac621git.git/info/refs?service=git-receive-pack HTTP/1.1" 

It seems in org.eclipse.jgit.transport.TransportHttp. It always have a first try with HttpAuthMethod.Type.NONE. Then if authentication failed, it will get AuthMethod from response.

The problem is that some git server has limit on denied request per second. Reaching that limit server just cut of connection for a period of time.

So I think there should be a way to set default AuthMethod. Is there such a way? Or will it be added soon?

This could be improved, patches welcome.

TransportHttp.connect() detects required auth method from HTTP status code of failed first request.
We could add a method allowing to explicitly set the default auth method.

In addition TransportHttp could cache the auth method discovered in a request and try that one
again instead of always assuming NONE for subsequent requests.
