Force IE Credential Prompt

P: n/a
When I would try to connect to a Virtual Server Host's admin page from Win2k
Pro I would be prompted for credentials. Now that my employer has gone to XP
IE goes straight to saying "You are not authorized to view this page" without
givng me the option to supply alternate credentials. I'm launching the URL
from a VB.Net application using...

process.start("https://servername:1024/VirtualServer/VSWebApp.exe?view=1")

Is there a way to force IE to prompt for credentials?

p.s. In case you're wondering why I don't just use runas or something to
supply the credentials, its because of how VSH works, or at least how my
employer has implemented it. I can log into a host server with an ID that has
admin rights and open the VSH admin page from start / programs and still be
prompted for credentials. I enter the same user id and password that I used
to log into the server and it opens. I'm ok with having to enter an ID and
password to get the VSH admin page to open, I just need IE to give me that
option.

Thanks!
