Hi  - From Stata, I would like to input data from files (text files) that
are stored in some folder on a remote server. Furthermore, a password is
required to get acces to the server. Does anyone know how to access such
files and submit the password?

Al,

While the functionality that you are looking for is not inherent to Stata, here are two server-side options:

-the remote server is running a proxy server or has a trust mechanism with a proxy, you can modify Stata's proxy settings to point to the unrestricted location

-most web servers allow for ACL's, IE: Apache's .htaccess files. The web master can plug in your IP address to remove the access restriction

-Pete
