password bypass

Hi Folks,

Does anybody know if a URL can be structured in a way that includes a
username and password? The purpose would be to bypass the Windows
password dialog box, and go directly to a password protected web page.
Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Ken

Re: password bypass

First of all, see:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Url

So it would be easy to create a shortcut on your desktop to
http://userassword@www.domain.com but why would you want to? It sounds
very insecure to me - wouldn't it show up in your history?

Re: password bypass

The purpose for this is that we have a password protected family
website. One family member doesn't have a real computer. He uses
WebTV. When he attempts to go to the site, he can't reach it because
WebTV apparently doesn't contain the password dialog box that's part
of the Windows and Mac operating systems.

Your example given below doesn't seem to work. Might it be that it
would work with a site on which you have to enter a username and
password into a box on the web page, but not when you have to enter it
into the Windows password dialog box?
