Thank you for all the help I got, I solve my problem with the solution of
scott, I pass the username and password in the URL, it's not very secure but
it works fine.
By the way It doesn't seem to be a http refinement in system/options, so I
canno't test this solution.

From the docs:
8.5. Acting Like a Browser
Normally, REBOL identifies itself to a server when it reads from a Web
site. However, some servers are programmed to respond to particular
browsers only. If a request to a server does not produce the correct Web
page, you can change the request to make it look like it came from some
other type of Web browser. Pretending to be a Web browser is done by many
programs to get Web sites to respond correctly. However, this practice does
end up defeating the purpose behind the browser identification.
To change HTTP requests to look as though they are being sent by Netscape
4.0, you can modify the user-agent within the HTTP handler:
Setting this variable affects all HTTP requests that follow.
