HTTP Authentication


I am trying to send a http_get command to reboot an encoder that I am using in my system, however it needs to login first before it accepts the command. On firefox it just pops up a login box. is there any way to format the http command to add the login information in it?

    The attached code does HTTP authentication(Which requires Base64 encoding the username and password) for a HTTP Post request to a streaming server I needed to talk to. It controls channel changes on the receiver boxes. I got the 'CHANGE_DISPLAY_CHANNEL' call working but didn't implement much else like HTTP response parsing which is commented out.

    Hope this helps someone out there in the future, as this post has gone unanswered a long time.
