httplib2, the library used by the uri module only sends authentication information when a webservice responds to an initial request with a 401 status. Since some basic auth services do not properly send a 401, logins will fail. This option forces the sending of the Basic authentication header upon initial request.

"ansible-httpget"
Header to identify as, generally appears in web server logs.

string / required
The IP address of the host.
