I am trying a basic web services call. I tried this through SOAP UI and gave the login and password as request properties and it works. How can I simulate this excel macro?

I tried the following:

    xmlhttp.setRequestHeader "Man", Post & " " & "https://" & Server & " HTTP/1.1"
    xmlhttp.setRequestHeader "MessageType", "CALL"
    xmlhttp.setRequestHeader "Content-Type", "text/xml"
    xmlhttp.setRequestHeader "Username", UserName
    xmlhttp.setRequestHeader "Password", Password

It did not work. I also tried to append the username and password along with the server and still did not work.
