Merge pull request conflicts

I am trying to pull a "pull request" from another users fork of my project. It states there is a conflict and I need to handle it manually by pulling into my local repo. It provides the following intructions:

hg update default
hg pull -r default
hg merge 5be0318f2bdc
hg commit -m 'Merged in rwritz/guac (pull request #1)'

But after entering step two I get:

http authorization required for
realm: HTTP

After entering my username and password it results in:

abort: authorization failed

What am i doing wrong? I can push and pull to the repo normally from my local repo, but cannot pull from the fork contribution.
