It looks like you're specifying your proxy incorrectly. $mech->proxy() takes a URL as its second argument, not an IP address.

Try $mech->proxy('http', '') and see if that works.

    Yay! Thank you!!

    This almost works now!

    I can see the link to the file I want to download now but I'm now sure how to reference it.

    'last_uri' => ' +/fixinfo/download?file=LatestFixData53', 'uri' => ' +nfo/download?file=LatestFixData53',

    How do I save this? I've looked at lwp-download but that only confused me more.
      I know it's bad form to be replying to my own posts but this is fixed now thanks to a work mate.

      The final code is:

      use Data::Dumper; use WWW::Mechanize; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new( cookie_jar => {}, agent => "WWW-Mechanize/0.01", protocols_allowed => ['http','https'], protocols_forbidden => [undef], autocheck => 1); $url = ' +ml'; $mech->proxy('http','http://PROXY/'); $mech->get( $url ); #print Dumper $mech; $mech->follow_link( text_regex => qr/More fix services/) or die; #print Dumper $mech; $mech->follow_link( text_regex => qr/AIX 5.3/) or die; #print Dumper $mech; $mech->follow_link( text_regex => qr/Data file for AIX 5.3/) or die; #print Dumper $mech; $mech->get(' +le=LatestFixData53'); print $mech->content;
