passing userid and password to webdav

Hi all,
is it possibile to create a link in order to send userid and password to webdav avoiding popup window ?

I need to obtain a direct access to a webdav folder avoiding user and password request.

Thank you in advance

Re: passing userid and password to webdav

Try this - after logging into the SAS Portal, search for and open the webdav file. Once opened, use the Internet Explorer menu (File -> Send -> Link by Email). This will open an email message on your machine with the URL. Use this URL in a SAS Portal URL Display Portlet - then authentication will not be requested again.

(You still have to log in once - to the SAS Portal. But then the file is available immediately, without having to reauthenticate to the WebDav server.)
