    Basic Authentication

      Hi All,

      I have built a Flex front end that uses the webservice tag to communcate with an asp.net web service. The webservice works great and the app is simple amazing. My problem is that I want to use basic authentication to obtain the WSDL and make subsequent calls to the service's methods. I tried setRemoteCredentials and setCredentials from within Flex on the webservice but neither work. Has anybody successfully called a webservice using basic authentication without a user name and password pop-up (its hard coded for now)? I have one generic user name and password setup to call the webservice over SSL. This is used for all users. I basically want to make the communication transparent to the user and still keep the webservice secure. any ideas?
