You can try this:

but the specific setup you're asking for isn't possible AFAIK.

First of all: we cannot recommend such a setup. It's not possible on Coppermine level, but should be possible on web server level. Add a directory protection via .htaccess. The URL will then looks like http://user:pass@host.tld/.
