Morning Micah,

many thanks for your reply!

You're right, I was trying to run the wget for a a web-form.

Anyway I've installed the latest version 1.13.4 and tried on my local
machine and it worked perfectly.

Now I've another question for you.

On our environment machine, we can upgrade only the wget 1.9.1 version.

Looking to this link,

It seems that the 1.9.1 wget version already has the post-data options.

Could you please confirm it?

Many thanks again

I'm not 100% sure I understood your original message, but it sounds to

me like you're trying to use --http-user and --http-passwd to log into a

page that uses form-based authentication (where you type your username

and password into fields on the page), and not HTTP authentication

(where a dialog box usually pops up asking you for that information.

--http-user and --http-passwd are only meant for HTTP authentication.

For forms-based authentication, see:


Hope that helps.
