Extracting data from WebTrends Rest URL with Talend

I am trying to extract data from the WebTrend's rest URL using Talend's tRest component, but am getting a connection refused error because WebTrends does not have user / pw parameters in the connection string. WebTrends relies on a popup dialog box for verification.
Does anyone know of a way around this? I have also tried the tHTTPRequest component, but have had no success.
Thanks,
Ben

Hi Ben
I think this is not due to Talend...
Here is some info from webtrend.
There is currently no way to embed the username / password in the REST request string. 
In platforms such as Flash, Silverlight, and .NET Winforms, you use application tools and
frameworks to assemble the header with the credentials and submit the request.

Hope this will help you.
