Hey guys,

I need some help with the "authentication required prompt" box. I need to disable it for one of my cpanel login pages but, I can't find an answer anywhere that works. As you can see from the attached images the box doesn't always show up. But as guessed it only shows up on the one login page that I do not want it to.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

Cheers David

I've called the big guys to help you. Good luck.

Normally, sites designed for interactive logon through a form do not ALSO require basic authentication. If you cancel that dialog, can you log in normally or does the page change to an unauthorized error?

Actually, I visited the site and it does seem if you cancel the dialog you can access the form in the page. Which makes me question why they have the prompt in the first place.

Also, why do not they not use SSL for the login? Do they want someone else at the Starbucks to take over your account? Sheesh.

I see this in the HTTP response headers:

http://groundfloorwebsites.com.au:2082/

GET / HTTP/1.1
Host: groundfloorwebsites.com.au:2082

HTTP/1.1 401 Access Denied
WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="cPanel"

Pressing the ESC key or click Cancel gives me a web based login form on the website.

Hey guys,

yes if I cancel the dialog I can login. But the problem is that I am attempting to automate the login. Unfortunately Imacros is unable to cancel the dialog for me.

My only solution, "that I can see", is to do away with the dialog box ......somehow.
