This is a bit of a hack, but it may help.  Create an HTAlert callback for
HT_A_USER_PW.  It would look something like:

static BOOL
prompt_username_password(HTRequest *request, HTAlertOpcode op,
                         int msgnum, const char *dfault,
                         void *input, HTAlertPar *reply)
{
	HTAlert_setReplyMessage(reply, "the-username");
	HTAlert_setReplySecret(reply, "the-password");
	return YES;
}

/* and in your startup code: */

HTAlert_add(prompt_username_password, HT_A_USER_PW);


This should work with any of the protocols that require username/password
authentication.

James.
