Question
Can the Agent Connectivity Credential be used to authenticate against package servers as well as the notification server?

Answer
Enabling the Agent Connectivity Credential (ACC) will cause the agents to attempt to use the credentials provided to authenticate if they fail using anonymous authentication for both HTTP(S) and UNC based access.

The attempt to authenticate anonymously first is built into the agent and cannot be disabled. Thus using the ACC to enable authenticated access will show attempts to first authenticate anonymously followed by authenticated attempts.
