Right, but I guess you're posting to the URL you read the form from and not
where you should POST to. And since you say you posted with your browser to
there, I also think you didn't format the data the same way.

LiveHTTPHeaders is of course a fine tool that would tell you this. The
checksum thing is a dead-end as that is a TCP thing that A) is beyond what
libcurl controls and B) if the receiver actually cared about the bad checksum
it wouldn't have received the POST in the first place.
