I need to automate the "navigation" of the webbrowser control in VB.NET to a secure (HTTPS) URL.

When I use the syntax:

http: //uid:password@www.<domain>.com

It works fine.

When I use the syntax:

https: //uid:password@www.<domain>.com

It does NOT work.

I'd really like to stick with the webbrowser control for this. It is a WinForms app that uses the browser as a display to the user.
