  • HTTP Headers are not my friend today.

    hmmm this is sorta tricky to explain but ill do my best.

    I searched high and low, but RFC's arn't giving me the answer im looking for.

    I need to get a specific header field value. However i just cant do a normal "get" request because since the site requires authentication it redirects.

    Dont get me wrong, i have credentials and stuff, my question is though:

    Is there a way to pre-authenticate using my credentials to the server then send a get request to obtain my headerfield of the specific URL? (using telnet) ^_~ (that's the stupid part)

    and if so could you happen to point me to the right direction guys/gals?

    and if it comes down to me having to write code <_< then is it possible todo it in perl because that's the only code im actully combfortable with?

    Thanks again dudes. =)

    I'm not sure what you mean by pre-authenticate, but you do authentication using cURL . I often need to screenscrape sites with RFC2716 authentication (simple or digest) and cURL works just dandy.

        Try again, its loading ok now. Was a bit sticky this morning, but the comcast DNS performance has always been less than stellar.
