HttpWebRequest not passing Credentials

I’m trying to use HTTPWebRequest to access a REST service, and am having problems passing credentials in, see code below. I’ve read that NetworkCredential doesn’t support SSL, and I’m hitting an HTTPS site. Does anyone know of a class similar to NetworkCredential that does support SSL?

Uri requestUri = null;
Uri.TryCreate("https://mywebserver/webpage", UriKind.Absolute, out requestUri);
HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)HttpWebRequest.Create(requestUri);
NetworkCredential nc = new NetworkCredential("user", "password");
request.Credentials = nc;
request.Method = WebRequestMethods.Http.Get;
HttpWebResponse response = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse();

If your server uses NTLM authentication you may try this:

CredentialCache cc = new CredentialCache();
new Uri("https://mywebserver/webpage"),
new NetworkCredential("user", "password"));
request.Credentials = cc;
