You can either:

a) put the right username and password in the binding file and then import.
When the binding file is created secure data (like password) is (correctly)
removed, since the binding file is clear text.

b) Check out the ExplorerOM. Look at BtsCatalogExplorer and SendPorts - can
do change the PrimaryTransportData property (this is essentially the data
the adapter stores in the ENTSSO - and what you see when you click on the
edit ***on in the URI property grid row).
