I tried to login to the site as suggested, the following way:

curl -x proxy:3128 -d "userid=a%40x.y.z&passwd=***&sub=Sign+In"
-k -L -b /tmp/cookie -c /tmp/cookie

The userid, passwd and submit patterns are as recorded by LiveHTTPHeaders
during the manual login. However, the html output shows up the login form
(uses "post" method) again. Kindly help me resolve this.
