I too am coding in .NET and am having the same Problem.
Connecting with the remote API returns status code 401. I am setting the request header Authorization
to Basic and am supplying the User:Password.

web_client.Headers.Add("Authorization", "Basic " + Convert.ToBase64String(new ASCIIEncoding().GetBytes("user:admin")));


string credentials = Convert.ToBase64String(Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes("user:admin"));
web_client.Headers[HttpRequestHeader.Authorization] = string.Format("Basic {0}", credentials);

Why don't you use the already existing library:

Thanks Oberon, the reason I am not using the library you provided is because of the Silverlight requirement.
I want to stick with pure .Net.

I managed to solve my 401 (authentication) issue.

It seems that the .Net System.Net.WebClient cannot connect correctly.
I switched to the .Net System.Net.WebRequest and it works perfect :D

Hi, can you post your code, which solved the 401 error ? I tried WebRequest, but no success.
