It sounds like you may be describing Webdav (extension of http) in
combination with basic authentication (prompting you for credentials) and
SSL, try this with your browser:

Open browser, expand FILE menu, Select OPEN, wait for new window, put
checkmark beside "Open as Web Folder," type in the url that you need to go
to, and click OK.

Then the links will look different. It will look more like Windows
Explorer than Internet Explorer.

And then you can drag and drop files from Windows Explorer or from Desktop
or such to this Web folder.

Hope that helps!
