Pulling XML data from external source

I've been bouncing my head off the wall for the last day.


I'm trying to pull in password protected XML data directly into FileMaker Go 13. I can view the XML data on my desktop but cannot view the XML data on any iOS device.


1. When I use the Insert from URL, the Connection Fails on both desktop and Go(error 1631). Now I am assuming this happens because of the credentials? Can I place the credentials into the URL?


2. I have had a bit of success scraping the webviewer but the solution only works on the desktop and not on Go. On the iOS device, the app enters into the "processing through a script look" (whatever the spinning circle thing in the middle is). No where in Go does it prompt me to enter in my credentials to use the XML data.


I don't have an XLST sheet for the data but even trying to import the XML data via Import Records->XML data source, I get the connection error.


What can I do?
