All of that becomes a true non-sense.... You were talking about http authentication and now you are bringing your problem down to sql server...


I suggest you take a moment out of your code and try to read articles about http authentication and its different mechanisms. A bit of theorical knowledge on this will help you narrow down your problem.

Personally, I can not help you much more on this... good luck buddy.

look at my answer, it states if you are using "basic authentication" that will work.
If it is not working it means your server is not using "basic auth" but most probably "Windows authentication" and then there is nothing you can do by simply calling a url like that...

you can't do that... http authentication is not wihthin a form. it adds information to the headers of the http request.

That said : what are you trying to do?? Call the thing manually from the webbrowser or do it programmatically ?

encode your password not the @ in the url...

http://encodedusername:encodedpassword@192.168.3.161/ReportServer

so you should html encode your password prior to the call..
