Glad it worked.

The http scheme encodes the username and password. While it is not passed
as "clear text," it is certainly not encrypted either. The rfc that defines
authentication explains this fact further, and it appears as though
REBOL supports the standard. I suspect that Internet Explorer
sends the information in the same format (encoded but not encrypted), so
there is little difference.

As Brett indicates the location apparently changed after this documentation
was written (?). Now at:
== "REBOL 22.214.171.124.1"
Occasionally, a website can be very picky, in which case changing this
user-agent can be very important. Apparently it was not the problem in your
situation. Happy REBOLing
