I need to access a protected url and get it's resources through an Applet. I am able to do that using IE and NS 7.x.
But, I face a problem in NS 4.7x.
I pass the user credentials through the well known steps,

In Netscape 4.7x, after this step, it hangs. I'm not able to get the InputSream. If I get, I get the redirection html file.
What went wrong here?
Then, I passed the username and password in the url itself, like this:
http://username assword@abcdefg.com/myFile.zip
This works fine in NS 4.7x now. But, the problem is I get the HTTP authentication dialog, which I don't want.
Can someone please tell me how to suppress the dialog in NS 4.7x?
Thanks in advance,
