RE: Problem connecting to password protected page

Maybe what u need is a valid "REFERER". Refer to Point 7.0 on
http://curl.haxx.se/docs/httpscripting.html. It says

"A HTTP request may include a 'referer' field, which can be used to tell
from which URL the client got to this particular resource. Some
programs/scripts check the referer field of requests to verify that this
wasn't arriving from an external site or an unknown page. While this is a
stupid way to check something so easily forged, many scripts still do it.
Using curl, you can put anything you want in the referer-field and thus more
easily be able to fool the server into serving your request."

Use curl to set the referer field with:

curl -e http://curl.haxx.se daniel.haxx.se

Hope this helps ..

Okay I am getting somewhere. I can authenticate but I am getting an
