The site doesn't exist, so I'm assuming that's on your intranet.

You said it requires http authentiation. After you purge your browser cookies,
on the main page, does you browser pop up a user/pass window.  If not and
there is a form on the page to log in, then it is NOT http authentication but
form based <>

Proxy has NOTHING to do with authentication. Proxy is how one machine talks
through another as apposed to at another.
check your browser settings, httrack's must match.

Once you have the files on your machine, cow orkers would be looking at them. 
Httrack's setting would be irrelevant.

Log out of the browser, or clear the cookies
open the page, get the pop up.  Copy the user/pass from the httrack window to
the browsers just to be sure you don't have a typeo/case problem.
