Passing credentials to an IE popup window in VBScript

Last Modified: 2013-12-08
I want to pass credentials to an IE site I launch since it prompts me.  I don't want to pass my domain authentication because the authentication this uses is from a flatfile database so i want to just pass it a username and password.

the code below launches an IE site for something I'm automating on creating monitors and it prompts me for a username and password i would like to provide in the script.  Any ideas?
If numServer > 0 Then
	strLink= "http://ipmonitor.miamidade.gov:8080/em?form=importform&File=D%3A%5CConfigMonitors%5CMonitors.csv&File2=D%3A%5CConfigMonitors%5CRelationships.csv&Monitors=1&Groups=1&Profiles=1&Accounts=1&Reports=1&Jobs=1"
	Set objIExplorer = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
	objIExplorer.visible = True
	objIExplorer.navigate strLink
	Set objIExplorer = Nothing
End If
