there are clearly several input items to the "login-form" form that are
not being represented in your --post-data (which you've spelled
--post-date? but I assume it's correct in your real script), such as
"authenticity_token", "back_login", "auto_login", and the submit button
Many CGI-based forms require all the data from the submitted form to be
present in the post-data before they will function.
Chances are good that authenticity_token, at least, would need to be
parsed out from the original login page when you get it, and fed back to
it in the post-data. How you manage that will be up to you (Perl could
get you something quick-and-dirty).
