I have tried adding credentials using the Manage Credentials options, but somehow it is not working so either I am understanding it wrong, or its not working. Here is what i want to do:
1) Create a publishing point.
2) Assign user id and password - attachng it to this publishing point.
So when the client EE4 Pro enters the URL in the Publishing URL and clicking Connect, it should popup the User Id and password dialog to authenticate.
How can i do this?
Windows Server 2008 Standard
IIS 7 (Media Services 3)

***** Sorry for the question too early, found bug in our code, issue resolved.
Reopening the same thread as seeing some issues with same publishing point that has worked, so not sure could be due to any updates or something else and need help.
Authentication is set on the .isml file, so that when the client click Connect from the EE4 Pro - Connect button to a publishing point, it prompts for the user id and password. That works as the client can connect and send the feed normally. Details section
on IIS shows the coming feed as well.
Now when we request through the browser as our URL + <file>.isml/manifest - It is asking for userid and password. We don't want that, how can we do that?
Two users have access to this file, one Application pool identity user and the custom users that is used for connecting through encoder to a publishing point.

Yes, that has worked perfectly well. Thank you for your suggestion.
This is still revealing the publishing-point and I have seen people trying to get to the end-point to publish and disrupt the stream when the client is in idle state. Is there another way whereby I can hide the publishing point. For example: send a feed
to publishing point 1 but let the viewers watch it using 2, which is somehow protected to not receive the streams?
