Dan -
Nope. The ip comes back with -
curl: (6) Couldn't resolve host
curl: (51) SSL: certificate subject name '' does
not match target host name ''

Since our current password is no longer valid, I am requesting a reset
or new password from the vendor.
I was hoping I would see some output even knowing the login would fail.
Now that I am, you are pointing me to an additional issue which may be
Interesting that the "Couldn't resolve host" message is followed by the
username/password/command instead of the http address.
Like I said curl is totally new to this old guy, but I will get this
based on the help I am getting from this mailing list.

In a previous reply, I mentioned the vendor had given us a "java script"
for this process.
Based on my little knowledge of java, I call it a script because it
looks like a function written in java.

Thanks for your perseverance.

That's more like it. If it can't even resolve the host, then you're not
to get any output. Try substituting the IP address of the host for the
name in the URL and see if you can get around what looks like DNS
(or a typo). That method doesn't always work because of virtual hosts,
if it does it will get you closer.
