Ralph,
 
Thank you for the tip. I'm new to CURL, but find it great tool.
 
Now I'm able to logon with cookies and redirection.
curl -L -c newcookies.txt -d
"email=scott.tiger%40company.com&password=PASSWD" -x webproxy:8080
http://edw.morningstar.com/login.aspx/login.aspx
 
But still can't download the file. What am I doing wrong?
curl -L -O -c newcookies.txt -x webproxy:8080
http://edw.morningstar.com/download.aspx?action=ExtendedMasterlist
<http://edw.morningstar.com/download.aspx?action=ExtendedMasterlist>
 
The trace info:

        In internet explorer I can download the files by:
        1. Logon to the site:
        
http://edw.morningstar.com/login.aspx?email=scott.tiger@company.com&pass
word=PASSWD
        2. Download the file:
        
http://edw.morningstar.com/download.aspx?action=ExtendedMasterlist
         
        I was asked to automate download process by using CURL, but I
can't get the login right.
        I tried the following:
        curl -u scott.tiger_at_company.com:PASSWD -x webproxy:8080
http://edw.morningstar.com/login.aspx
        curl -form-string scott.tiger_at_company.com;PASSWD -x
webproxy:8080 http://edw.morningstar.com/login.aspx
        curl --form-string email=scott.tiger_at_company.com;password=PASSWD
-x webproxy:8080 http://edw.morningstar.com/login.aspx
        curl -F email=scott.tiger_at_company.com;password=PASSWD -x
webproxy:8080 http://edw.morningstar.com/login.aspx
         
        How can I logon to the site?
        Any help is welcome. Thanks.

At the very least, you probably need to save/send cookies. There's a
lot of useful information here:
