Monitoring a Website with Silverlight



I have tried to monitor a website with silverlight. I get an 401 Unauthorized error. Is this an error caused by an incompatibility with silverlight? Or is the problem of other nature?

In the Authentication settings of the HTTP Advanced sensor, please use the Basic access authentication (HTTP) setting.

I am using this setting already. But it isn´t working, could it be caused because there is an SAP-Application running on this Website?
