[thredds] clients for restricted OPeNDAP-URL

Dear THREDDS team,

The restricted access to a OPeNDAP-URL works fine in web browsers, but not in clients like ferret. That's probably because they do not support this authentification method, like you mentioned in:

http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/projects/THREDDS/tech/reference/RestrictedAccess.html

Are there any clients that can handle this kind of authentification? Can Ferret or LAS handle it somehow?

Thank you very much,
Remon
