CFSchedules unauthorized access

I've got a couple of tasks scheduled on our server to access a particular directory. I've password protected this directory on the windows side. When I access the directory through my browser, it prompts me to enter my password info. I type it in and everything works good. When I unleash a CFSchedule on the template using the same information, the published file is returned with 402.1 error, unauthorized access. The cf templates aren't being excuted.

Has anyone encountered this problem before?

do you guys have a proxy server?  and if so, have you specified the proxy settings within it?

Long shot number two:
Is the ColdFusion service running under a user that hasn't got access to that directory? Shouldn't really matter, since you provide the scheduled task with a username/password. But then again, you never know...

Yes, have you put the username and password in the schedule itself?
You might want to include the domain as well domain\username

You think the adding domain\username to the schedule would have an affect? I might give that try. I believe CF is running under a different username, but I have supplied the username and password in cfschedule. (No proxy server btw)

Never could figure this one out. So we just removed the password protect on that directory. Thanks for your help.
