Subject:   http user/password option in fetch command
Message-ID:  <>

Some HTTP server (not using standard port 80), seems not taking the 
standard user:password format.

fetch http://$USER:$PW@server:1234/locations (FreeBSD) and

wget --user=$USER --password=$PW http://server:1234/locations (Linux) and

wget http://$USER:$PW@server:1234/locations    all get 403 Forbidden Error.

The wget has an option  --auth-no-challenge that solves the problem.

I wonder if the "fetch" command has a similar option. If not, does 
anyone know a way to work around this problem?
