Hi, Stéphane, I hesitated posting yesterday, because I don't "know" ("know" as in I "know" the sky is blue) the answer. I can suggest an approach that may work. Even if it does not work, then I may be able to help patch the http scheme to make it work for you. In ftp, one can pass the username and password in the url. This is true for REBOL and for Internet Explorer (at least for many ftp servers; some will pop-up a dialog and re-ask the sequence). ftp://my-user-name:[my-password--ftp--mysite--dom] The http scheme supports passing the username and password in a url to a proxy server, and may serve the same purpose in your situation. It is so easy to try, that I would try this first (something like the following): http://my-user-name:[my-password--unix]:83/cgi/ServBafi.r?type=charge If this does not work, then it is possible to patch the http scheme to the send the information at the correct time, but the only "easy" way to do this is to have a test site. I am guessing that it *will* work, but only a test will tell for sure. Try the approach listed above and let us know. Good luck! --Scott Jones
