I am facing the following problem: We run an UCP Director with version 126.96.36.199. I am trying to use a simple REST GET command to connect to UCP Director. The code is written in .NET (see below). I always get a 401, unauthorized error. When I use a web browser on the same machine to connect to https://...../api/about it asks me for credentials and connects just fine. I have found no examples how to pass authentication information to UCP director in .NET.
Any help would be appreciated
