Double authorizing

Hi all.
To be short, I need to access URL resource through
1. proxy authentication, and then
2. URL is password protected
When I simply try to open that page in IE it asks me in no time for proxy user-password and then URL user-password.
I do fine with 1 step authentication with Authenticator class, works the same way for step 1 and step 2 separately.
However, how should I combine them to make double authorizing?
Please advise me something.

Welcome to the Java Ranch, we hope you�ll enjoy visiting as a regular however,
your name is not in keeping with our naming policy here at the ranch. Please change your display name to an appropriate name as shown in the policy.
Thanks again and we hope to see you around the ranch!!
Also, please do not cross post your questions to multiple forums. Most of the visitors here read in many of the forums and it is frustrating to see the same question repeated over and over. You have a better chance of getting a correct and timely answer if you post it to the most appropriate forum instead of using the shotgun approach and hoping you'll hit something.

I agree. Here's the link:
