Connecting to SharePoint web Services over SSL using DefaultCredentials

I have a Windows Forms application which consumes some SharePoint Web Services.
Using DefaultCredentials, this works fine on any server which does not use SSL.

Attempting to connect to a SSL protected server, i get 401 Unauthorized error. (server is using Basic Authentication Only)

Here's the tricky part:  If, instead of using DefaultCredentials, i SPECIFY a username/password in my code - - Works fine.

Is there a way to use default credentials to connect to a SSL protected server and access the Web Services, WITHOUT turning on Integrated Windows Auth. on the server?

Two solutions
[1[ If you don't  use integrated authentication , you will need to set authtication with clear text .with SSL.
but your code does not support this type of authtication , you will need to rewrite the authtication portion , no using the .NET Credentials cache object as usual.
[2] Simply "Extend" the site with a new zone that is integrated and point that application to that site, while you keep your SSL setup on the default zone intact.

Good luck.
