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.

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.
