add link to private external website via rest API


I am inserting Confluence pages via Rest API, but when I try to include links to external private content, the page creation fails.  I am just inserting links using plain html (<a href=".."></a>).  Page creation works fine if I instead link to something public like Google.  Also, the private links work fine if I add them manually via the Confluence editor.

Thanks for your help,
