( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Yes I have tried changing form numbers and everything else I can think of. What appears to happen is that the original get() only pulls the first page which only has one form, with one input field and a submit button. The other forms and fields only show up after the first form is submitted. What I believe is the issue is that my results are just that results, but the script does not know or have a way to interact with the webpage after the first form is submitted.

I have noticed that if I add the code for the radio button in the first submit that that radio button is checked in my results from the first submit however, it is not returning the results. Based on this I am assuming that I could just submit any form with those fields filled in and the site will except it and return the results. It appears that it may depend on the value of the submit button that is used. Is there a way to set a submit value especially if the submit button does not have a name? Below is the page code of the site:

<form name="testform" action="test.tcl" method="POST"> <input> type="hidden" name "modem" value="1122.3344.5566"> <input> type="hidden" name="progName" value "test"> <input> type="hidden" name "called_program" value "/var/data/tools/cgi +-bin/test.tcl"> <input type="radio" name="ip_select" value=""<br> <input type="hidden" name="ip_select_type" value="xyz"> <input type="submit" value="gather this device from another">

I excluded the other radio buttons as the is the only one I am interested in submitting
