Most probably, a session cookie stored somewhere (probably 
in the C:\Documents and Settings\<your login>\Cookies\ 
folder or C:\Winnt\Cookies\)

You can try to copy/paste this cookie (.txt file) in the 
httrack project folder (such as C:\My Web Sites\My site\). 
If it does not work, you will have to play with the 'Add 
URL' / 'Capture URL' feature, which is a bit hard to handle 
(but it is really powerful in many cases)
