eteran,

Not with an environment or system variable.  Windows won't give the password up that easy. :)

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

In that case Integrated Windows Authentication won't work.  Talk to your hosting provider about what types of authentication they can support.  Something using user-based SSL certificates would probably be best.
