I have a a question that might have two possible answers.... I am in the midst of writing a VB program that will download files from an HTTPS server, that in itself works great... but now they want to set the web server up for challenge/response. Now the API call will not work since it is not expecting a userid/password prompt. So here's my question(s):
1 - Is there a way to embed the user id and password into the address similar to the way you can do it for ftp? (i.e. ftp://firstname.lastname@example.org/
2 - Alternatively, is there a different API call (or something similar) that will allow me to pass the user id and password to it?
Thanks in advance.
