I have a custom remote setup which has certain buttons that make HTTP requests. I have a web service running on my server, and the remote works using the http.get method (documented here). However, in trying to secure my webservice with basic auth, I wanted to pass those credentials from the remote server, such as http.get("https://username:[email protected]"). The "https://username:[email protected]" string works in my browser and via other services, but does not appear to work form the custom remote. Am I doing something wrong? Is there another way to specify credentials for HTTP requests?
