Is it really expecting POST , or is it just a standard http 
authorization? You might try putting the name and password in the url 
and see what happens. Use this style:

http://username:password@www.whatever.com/whatever.html

If it is using POST, then you will probably have to examine the html 
form from your browser to see what data has to be posted.
