One of the deployment scenarios with DD4T 2.0 is to use a REST service. There are many advantages attached to this approach, but you have to be careful about one thing: the number of TCP connections between the web server and the REST server.

One of the most useful novelties in DD4T 2.0 are the ViewModels. A ViewModel is a simple class, normally consisting only of properties, which is handed over to a view for rendering.

In my previous post I explained how to add HTTP Basic authentication to a DD4T REST Service.
If you have done that and your application is consuming content from the REST service, your request should end up in HTTP 403 Not Authorized. This is to be expected, because you have now implemented authentication on the REST service, but the client – the DD4T Rest Provider – does not add any authentication headers to the request by default.
