Is it possible to configure AGS 10.1 to use http basic authentication to secure services???

We have set up the security to "ArcGIS Server Built-in" at:
    http://localhost:6080/arcgis/manager/security.html
but after securing a service, seems that the only way to access it is with tokens.

Case 1: http://localhost:6080/arcgis/admin/security/config with:
    -Authentication tier: GIS_SERVER
    -Authentication mode: ARCGIS_TOKEN
    RESULT: A WMS query to one of this services returns an error code 499, both accessing it directly to port 6080 or with java web adaptor at 8080, or with iis adaptor.

Case 2: http://localhost:6080/arcgis/admin/security/config with:
    -Authentication tier: WEB_ADAPTOR
    -Authentication mode: WEB_ADAPTOR_AUTHENTICATION
    RESULT: A WMS query to one of this services returns an error code 403, both accessing it directly to port 6080 or with java web adaptor at 8080, or with iis adaptor.


Is still possible to secure services with http basic authentication like it was on 10 or 9.3.1 ???
If I set authentication to WEB_ADAPTOR, should I do some extra configurations at iis adaptor or java adaptor???

thanks,
