    Adding Http Headers to a Request from Client

    I'm working on a project where under certain circumstances (which can be identified either by the page the user came from or the value of a session variable) I need to add authentication information to the http headers in the request sent by the client (the application uses basic authentication so I just need to add the "Authorization: Basic <base64 string>" header. I think I should be able to do this using an HttpModule and the BeginRequest or some other event in the HttpApplication, but it seems that the HttpApplication's Request.Headers collection is always read-only. Am I right that I should be able to add a header using an HttpModule, and if so, can anybody offer an example to demonstrate how?

    Dunno, But...

    Try looking up "IAuthenticationModule Interface" in the online Help.

    Maybe it'll point you in the right direction.
