I am trying to set up a scheduled task using a .vbs that simply opens an .aspx that resides on the same box (WinServer2008 R2 Standard SP1). The .aspx updates a database nightly. The problem I am having is that the website is using Windows Authentication and requires credentials. How can I pass credentials via the .vbs, or is there a better way to go about this? Anonymous access is not an option, although the process works when it is allowed.

'URL = "https://www.google.com"
'Open the HTTP request and pass the URL to the objRequest object
objRequest.open "GET", URL, false
