If the proxy uses NTLM authentication and you have no valid
credentials, I found no reliable way to get a meterpreter connection
through that configuration, period. "as always, if I'm that sure then
I'm most probably wrong...".

If the proxy uses IP address based filters "i.e is allowed
but is not" and does not apply protocol inspection then it
is way easier to bypass the proxy by using the HTTP CONNECT method
"works flawlessly if combined with proxytunnel and some dos-fu".

I had that issue in a test before and I had very difficult time going
through that "ISA with NTLM auth.", and ended up getting the shell
using a modified dnscat "added self-copy-on-execution-and-autostart

take a look at ratte "part of SET", it's buggy, it's unstable but
works sometimes if it's only a PoC that you are after.

and while we're on the topic, take a look here -->

Till metasploit finds a way to go properly through proxies in the
mentioned configurations, you might want to find another way to have
your shell connected back to you...

Hey HD Moore

I see. But reverse_https is not able to reuse the same connection from
IE, right? Sor for example, if the IE browser uses a proxy and the
proxy require authentication (integrated on the DC) it will fail,

In my opinion passiveX was one of the best payloads in metasploit. Is
it really broken? Any prevision to fix it?

Is it broken even in Metasploit Professional? There are better
payloads (more robust, hard to detect and better to find their way to
the internet on the Metasploit Professional)?

This payload has been broken off and on for years; the original version
only worked with IE6, Natron did a ton of work to make it work on IE7,
but we will probably not be bringing it into IE8/IE9 compatibility, in
favor of a different implementation altogether based on the
reverse_https stager.
