My apologies, I forgot. Slackware 8.1, curl 7.10.

Thank you! I was able to login using the -d options and the -k. However
the --cacert ca-cert-bundle.pem still gives the above error. That is okay
for now.

My next problem is the site does some oddball redirects (302 errors) which
only are visible when using curl. I see nothing when using the browser.
Trying to use the -D option only shows this:

HTTP/1.0 302 Found
Date: Tue, 06 May 2003 20:32:14 GMT
Server: Apache/1.3.14 (Unix) mod_perl/1.25 mod_ssl/2.7.1 OpenSSL/0.9.6
Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1

So pretty now, now that I initially got in, I have to figure out how to
get my page.

Any thoughts on this, or am I pretty much out of luck using curl for this?
