Re: Advice on curling a itrc.hp.com page

Not sure whether I did it right though. But I did it 2 ways:
1) Signed in and went to find the cookie file(me_at_hp.txt) in temp folder and used that in place of 'cookie' in the command line
2) ran the first command and then the written 'cookie' is saved and reused in the second command with the https-webpage
I think I'm wrong, please help!
