RE: CURL Post Form data

Yes, the field that changes, is submitted evey time. Every time we login
to the URL, intial value of this field will be some non predictable
value. For every we docurl_easy_perfom(), it will get incremented.
I tried with capturing the previous value and submiting this field in
the form after incrementing it. But no improvement shown.

Can we do anything for this issue ?

Is the for *exactly* the same every time, or are their fields that
change each time it's submitted? There's sometimes an authentication
"cookie" of sorts embedded in a hidden form input that's calculated with
a Javascript formula.
Without reverse engineering that and sending the correct value each
submission, the server will throw it away.
