NPE if credentials aren't provided but necessary

      Description

      I've tried to use Monitoring External Jobs plug-in as described on Wiki. Plug-in works correctly, but I'm not satisfied with error handling - user isn't navigated properly what goes wrong.

      Example:
      Jenkins instance needs a proper credentials provided by client, otherwise request is rejected...

      Well, through programatical way I've got an expected result:

      curl -X POST -d '<run><log encoding="hexBinary">4142430A</log><result>0</result><duration>2000</duration></run>' https://<_hostname_>/hudson/job/<_job_>/postBuildResult 
      
      <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN">
      <html><head>
      <title>401 Authorization Required</title>
      </head><body>
      <h1>Authorization Required</h1>
      .
      .
      

      The same via Jenkins core produces a NPE:

      export JENKINS_HOME="https://<_hostname_>/hudson/"
      java -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=my.store -jar jenkins-core-1.580.3-3.5febb286.jar  <_job_> echo ABC
      ABC
      java.lang.NullPointerException
              at hudson.Util.copyStream(Util.java:460)
              at hudson.Main.remotePost(Main.java:184)
              at hudson.Main.run(Main.java:73)
              at hudson.Main.main(Main.java:55)
      

      Why isn't the second way handled and correctly reported to the user?

      In addition my Jenkins instance is a bit slow (let say, Jenkins spends approx. 30s in each request/response cycle), I've got quite often an SocketTimeoutException for the same request on client side (as described above in second example with fixed JENKINS_HOME content):

      java.net.SocketTimeoutException: Read timed out

      BUT the output is correctly saved on Jenkins side into the run though...
