Access a secured ServiceControl API from ServiceInsight

Note: This is a follow up of this question

We have ServicePulse running in IIS which we installed following this instructions. The site is protected with Windows Authentication for lack of a better option.

I would like to use ServiceInsight from my local machine and connect to the same ServiceControl API that ServicePulse uses, but ServiceInsight cannot (as far as I know) authenticate to the API with Windows Authentication.

How can I resolve this? Can I make ServiceInsight to authenticate correctly? Should I use a different mechanism to protect the API that would allow ServiceInsight to access it?
