Last week, I faced same problem like yours. But mine is solved by using -L
and -o parameters. The only deiifernece I found from your URL is # symbol. I
don't know CURL has specific meaning with this symbol different to HTTP
meaning. I am just hpoing, not sure. Replace /# symbol in your URL with ?
and try.
Try like this.
curl '' -L
-o 1.html
If you are using proxy server rather than normal HTTP, include proxy
parameter in your curl command like below
curl -x <<proxyIP>>[:port]
'' -L -o
Default port is 8080 (if proxy listening port is different, mention that)
and if your proxy IP is, then command will be
curl -x
'' -L -o
curl -x
'' -L -o

I have tried
curl '' -L
-o 1.html
It gives again the main page rather than the particular page I am looking
Any solution. If I paste the same in firefox, it shows the required page.

Curl '".609574 <>
&lon^.502083&z_&l=0&m=m&v=1' -L -o 1.html
Please note that url should be in single quotes, -L and -o options should be
used. Please let me know the result.
