I have created an application updater that goes out to a website, downloads a manifest and then via httpwebrequest starts downloading files. Everything works as it should. I then decided to add a layer of security and placed a password on the directory. When you open up a browser and browse to the url you are now prompted for a username and password.
My question is how can I pass the username and password to my webrequest so the update continues without end user intervention? This is not on a network(no AD), I am assuming the website is using basic authentication.
when i use this method My.Computer.Network.Downlo
bsite.com/updates", strManifest, username,password) it works fine.
Please can you show me how to accomplish this?
