The curl version is 7.18 (I finally got it installed and compiled with php
5.2.5)

It may be easier for you to try it yourself actually..

This is the link

https://est-oee.canadapost-postescanada.ca/shipping/estShipping.jsp?locale=e
<https://est-oee.canadapost-postescanada.ca/shipping/estShipping.jsp?locale=
en_CA&formId=110>
n_CA&formId=110

it will redirect you to the login page (although Im not entirely sure that
it is an actual redirect) ..

using Live HTTP headers you'll see exactly what I mean

The first page gives back a page with a META refresh tag that has a big url.
Fetching *that* link returns a page containing this little bit of
javascript:

        sTestCookie = "CPC_TEST_COOKIE";
        oDate = new Date();
        oDate.setFullYear(oDate.getFullYear() + 10);
        sDate = oDate.toGMTString();
        sCookieListUPC = sTestCookie + "=TEST; expires=" + sDate + ";
path=/";
        document.cookie = sCookieListUPC;
        if(!document.cookie)
                location = "browser_error.htm";

So, the web browser is generating the CPC_TEST_COOKIE on-the-fly. Curl
doesn't even attempt to execute the javascript. You'll need to examine the
page content and deal with any script-generated cookies yourself.

Hi Ralph, I saw the it is creating CPC_TEST_COOKIE through javascript.. but
there are other cookies beyond CPC_TEST_COOKIE that are missing..

Here is the list,

Cookie: CPC_TEST_COOKIE=TEST;

Why are these cookies not being retrieved when they are not generated by the
page but passed.. ?
