When I try the method shown above,
I get back <title>You are not authorized to view this page</title>

and from the server:

HTTP/1.1 401 Access Denied

The form is as follows, I have also tried sending login=sims:password=sims
with the post but with no success (also URLEncoded).

Not sure how to proceed from here...

Thanks,
