youre asking for the file through an fopen wrapper (or similar) meaning some
vanilla code is being used to download the xml file from the remote server.
 if you want to specify credentials for an http connection why dont you try
curl.  also you might try stream contexts, however, i dont think those are
supported by the simplexml functions.

short version - pull down the file w/ curl then feed it to simplexml
