in reply to WWW::Mechanize and cisco.com

This url https://sso.cisco.com/autho/forms/CDClogin.html tells me you have money to hire a programmer to write this program for you :)

This url http://developer.cisco.com/web/webex-developer/sso-reference tells me there is probably a better alternative to scraping cdclogin.html

Maybe it involves Net::SAML/Net::SAML2 ... that first URL had a FAQ/Help links, if you have an account, ask about easier ways to automate authentication , they'll probably help you :)

    Thanks for pointing me to that interesting links. IŽll give Http::Recorder a try. Paying someone else for a solution was not what i had in mind ;). My intention was to access Ciscos Error Message Decoder Tool. Something which has been done before by that guy: http://inetpro.org/wiki/Cisco_Error_Lookup_Tool_Scraper
