in reply to solve reCAPTCHA

Quickest and easiest approach to come to mind: If you "spoke to the siteadmin and he said its no problem", then ask them if they can provide you an alternate method of accessing the data you seek-either values to enter that will be accepted in lieu of the reCAPTCHA response, or another address that will provide access to the data without the reCAPTCHA requirement. (If the latter, they may also wish to restrict the access by IP address, user agent, credentials you provide, or some combination thereof, to prevent malicious bypass.)

Hope that helps.

    Well your right! But he is not willing to make any effort. All he said is: "okay". To the question if I can use a perl-bot. besides from that I finde the problem very interessting and was hoping someone could come up with an idea!

      The whole point to captcha is to thwart bots attempts to access a site. It may be that you have permission from the sysadmin. But that doesn't make it a simple problem to solve from your end of the line. If it were simple, it would be ineffective. This is one case where hard things really are hard. Any effort to thwart the captcha will consume considerable work on your part, elevating the cost above what you are willing to commit. Your sysadmin probably knows this and is secretly laughing behind your back.

      Sure! Go ahead! No problem! **smirk**
