Unsuccesful form login with curl

When I try this from the command line on my virtual server:

virtual curl -A "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)" -L

I am returned a web page from the remote server that says that my password
was incorrect.

When I copy and paste the same url into my desktop web browser, I am
authenticated without problem and am logged into my user account on the
remote server.

Does anyone have any suggestions of what changes I can make so that the curl
request works identically to accessing the site through the standard
