Default Basic authentication


I'm trying to include some user credentials for accessing a remote
file (XML File).It can be accesed by dll'method at remote location . The remote location requires that I use Basic authentication. I tried using following code but when code execution comes at highlighted line it breaks itself and nothing happens.

__________________________________________________ ______
  Dim xmlDoc As XmlDocument = New XmlDocument
        Dim request As HttpWebRequest = CType(WebRequest.Create(""), HttpWebRequest)

        'Set Request Method (POST) and Content Type (text/xml)
        request.Method = "POST"
        request.ContentType = "text/xml"
        request.ContentLength = 100000
        request.Credentials = New System.Net.NetworkCredential("Username", "pwd")

        request.Timeout = 15000
        Dim str As Stream = Nothing
        Dim resp As WebResponse = request.GetResponse() str = resp.GetResponseStream()

        'Process Response
        ' Get Response into String
        Dim sr As StreamReader = New StreamReader(str)
        'label1.text = xmlDoc.InnerXml


Can anyone help?

Thanks in Advance.
