HTTP authentication issue


I am trying to setup an interface which requires an external system to post data into XI using HTTP. In order to achieve this in my company's network the HTTP post is pointed towards a separate server in the DMZ that passes the HTTP post through to XI.

However, when I post directly to XI it works without issue, when I post through the DMZ I'm required to enter an XI user name and password - I don't want to hand out ID's for our XI box to customers and have them inserted in the HTTP post. How can I overcome this issue?

Many thanks,
