HTTP Authentication With WP Importer

Hello all,

To begin with, I've used URL and login in credentials to manually verify successful connectivity to the RETS XML file. So, link and username/password are properly configured.

I'm using WP Importer—not supported here—to populate posts within a Wordpress site. WP Import instructs how to formate a feed URL to include username and password for HTTP authentication http://username:password@link-to-file. I've formatted the link accordingly and when submitted receive the following error: RETS ReplyCode="20036" ReplyText="Missing User-Agent request header field."

Reading up it seems injecting the username/password in the http request is not supported today. I've emailed WP Importer and in the meantime thought I might check this forum to see if anyone has another suggestion for RETS authentication using this or similar plugin.

Thank you!
