  • Use the command line to log into Dropbox. You have to replace me@yahoo.com with your Dropbox email (note the URL-encoding of "@" as %40). Also replace my_passwd with your Dropbox password. (Note: special characters in your password (such as #) must be url-encoded. You will get a cookie (stored in file "cookie") that you can use for subsequent curl operations to dropbox, for example curl -b cookie https://www.dropbox.com/home. Debug note: If you want to see what data curl posts, use curl's --trace-ascii flag. Show Sample Output

  • I have a server with a php requiring basic authentication, like this: header('WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="do auth"'); header('HTTP/1.0 401 Unauthorized'); ...?> And the basic authentication in wget do not worked: wget --auth-no-challenge --http-user="username" --http-password="password" -O- "http://url" wget --keep-session-cookies --save-cookies=cookies.txt --load-cookies=cokies.txt --http-user="username" --http-password="password" -O- "http://url" I always received the 401 Authorization failed. The saved cookie is always empty. With my way, I received the header from the server and save the cookie, then resend the session cookie with authentication data Show Sample Output

    wget --auth-no-challenge --server-response -O- $url 2>&1 | grep "Cookie" | sed "s/^ Set-//g" > cookie.txt; wget --auth-no-challenge --server-response --http-user="user" --http-password="pw" --header="$(cat cookie.txt)" -O- $url

  • In order to do that, first you need to save a cookie file with your account info. These commands do it (maybe you need to create the '.cookies' dir before). Also, you need to check the "Direct downloads" option on the Premium Zone >> Settings tab. You need to do this once (as long you maintain the file or your Rapidshare Premium account).
