Subject [users@httpd] Providing pwd&usr with cgi URL
Date Wed, 22 Feb 2006 00:05:17 GMT

I need to programmatically connect to a cgi script at a domain
that is password protected.
Let's say the URL for the script is
and is restricted access requiring a username and

1)Can I supply the user and password as variables?
  If so:
  a)What is the name of the user variable?
  b)What is the name of the password variable?
  c)Are any other parameters required?

2)What server-sider configuration if any is required?

Pointers to relevant documentation is invited.
thank you
