what i'm doing wrong?

Date: Wed, 07 Nov 2001 18:47:04 +1000

Well I guess I need some help...

Attached is the html (vreme.html) from the site I want to get http docs from. This is a magazine site I'm subscribed to, which after logging in using this page redirects you to the table of contents with links to all the articles. I want to get all the articles from that list and print them out.

So to get the contents page I try to use

curl -b empty -L -x myproxy:8080 -d "username=xxx&password=yyy&submit=Submit"

I just see this

  % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Curr.
                                 Dload Upload Total Current Left Speed
  0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 --:--:-- 0:00:01 --:--:-- 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 --:--:-- 0:00:01 --:--:-- 0
  0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 --:--:-- 0:00:01 --:--:-- 0

like I'm being redirected somewhere but not get anything back?..

Interestingly enough when I put username and password which are not valid I get back the 'try again' page with no problem.

If it can help, attached is also a headers dump (dumpy.txt, using -D) and cookies dump (cookiejar.txt, -c).

Any help appreciated.
