Windows Server 2003: Enable programs to access sites with username/password


  • We have a Windows Server 2003 used for distributing data to a digital signage system (Scala). Part of this process is an Excel-file using an Add-In to collect this data from another server. This job is set up as a scheduled task.

    However, the external site requests username and password. This is prompted when Excel starts up (the Add-in).

    How can I set the settings on the windows server so that username and password is remembered? I am quite sure the settings in Excel is correct and that it is server settings that clear out login-data.
