    Hi, I have a driveway gate which can be accessed via the internet remotely. When I go to the gate's web address on the MS' touch screen browser I get "401 Unauthorised: Password required". Is there any way around this?

    I want to be able to open the gate when I'm a few hundred yards down the road so I don't have to dally with my butt in the road whilst I wait for the gate to open...

    Can you get to the gate via an app or browser on your phone?

    Yes - the latter.

    I think there's something about that page that is being filtered by the Tesla browser so you'll have to use your phone or just wait until you're close enough for Homelink.

    If you're not too security conscious, usually you can use the format https://username:p[email protected] to login with a single URL.

    Between the username and password is a colon, it just happens to be next to a p so it gets replaced with an emoji.
