I should have added that I'm using the HTTP.Get method, if that is not
obvious.  eg.

HTTP.Get('http://user:pa…@hostname.com:9000/folder');

The URL works in IE without the user:pass syntax which is not supported in
IE anymore.  IE asks for the username & password.  But the above should work
in Indy.

As I mentioned, I tried it woithout the user:pass syntax and entered this
data directly into the Username & Password properties using the IDE.

Any ideas?  I really need to get this working.  I can't use Indy 10 since
stops working after a few hours.

Regards,
Ross.
