Thank you for your answer.  Indeed the problem is that our serveur throws a
401 instead of a 403 when no credentials are provided.
Thank you for your link which will greatly help me.
I thought that 403(forbdiden) was for a known user that hasn't the right to
access a resource while 401 was for wrong/missing credentials.
Best regards,
