It depends on what kind of username and password authentication.  Is it the kind where a window pops up in between page loads, asking for just the username and password?  Or are they entered on the page itself?

If it's the first, wget is an option.
     wget --http-user=username --http-passwd=password http://someserver.com/somefile.jpg

An Alternate form of the wget command line

wget ftp://user:password@host/path
wget http://user:password@host/path

if you have/get "wget" http://sunsite.dk/wget/ you can just include either of the above lines in any script.

Thanks for returning and finalizing this.  However, you didn't add comments as to why the grade was less than an "A".  Experts here take great pride in delivering excellent solutions, and if they fall short really appreciate know about it.  If this was graded in error, also please let me know that since I can correct this.

The grades you assign remain the same point cost to you, however, the impact to the experts is directly related to the grade.  For example, expert points for this question were a "C" grade and therefore 100 X 2 for 200, a B would have been 300 and an A would have been 400 expert points.

I see more "C" grades in your history than any others, and am curious if you really feel that the experts at this site provides only that level of expertise and support. Many experts actually look at Asker history before deciding to step in and help.

More about this on the HELP DESK link to the left.
