yes. :) Theoretically, I should get that info at the very least. Then am I right to say that by adding -d "f_UserID=abc&f_Password=123" I should be able to curl in my desired page?
  ps. What is the -s and -S for?

curl -v -s -S -L -o a.html -b cookies -c cookies

I get 5 cookies and two redirects. The second redirect sends me back
to, but the url now has "admit=" and a bunch of
numbers inserted. The inout fields in a.html include

User ID or E-mail: input name=f_UserID
Password: input name=f_Password

There's also a "remember me" checkbox, some hidden fields and some
associated with searching for stuff.

Is that about what you were expecting??
