Viewing image in a secure directory

Hello all,

I am trying to display an image on my PictureBox1 which is retrieved from a secure directory on my server. On Firefox, I have to add my username/password to view the image. How would I add my username and password to make my application show on it's form the image on picturebox1?

This is what I have:

    Dim s As String
        s = "http://3xx.xxx.xx.xxx:81/" & lblvalue.Text & ".jpg"
        PictureBox1.ImageLocation = s

You have to download it to a local file and then use it.

My.Computer.Network.DownloadFile method takes the username and password parameters

Thanks, I have use the  Dim req As Net.HttpWebRequest = Net.HttpWebRequest.Create(s) method and it worked as well. Do you think there's a difference in performance between these two methods?
