Re: capturing octet streams - unknown MIME types

Thank you Daniel for the response.

The site I'm trying to wget or cURL does in fact
use cookies (2 of them), alas even when I reject
the cookies in the browser in any combination or
allow them in any combo, the download proceeds.
So my guess is the cookies do not govern the
download.

using wget, I fed the cookie file to no avail. I
wget a generic page. I supplied a useragent,
thinking the site examines it... it didn't help.

I think my problem is how to wget/cURL an
application/unknown stream.

Like I said, I'm new to this.... I could be not
feeding the right params.

Here is a sample page of the site
http://audio.islamweb.net/islamweb/index.cfm?fuseaction=SpeakerAudio&SpeakerID=142&type=2

The problem I'm trying to solve is when you click
any 'download' icon, e.g. :
http://audio.islamweb.net/islamweb/index.cfm?fuseaction=download&audioId=1373&ParentID=0

Any further help is greatly appreciated.

thanks
kal.
