in thread Use LWP::UserAgent to go to a password protected ASP page

Dear Ranjan:

I did download and run Charles to monitor my internet traffic. However, Charles only records internet activities through proxy server. When I start to run Charles, it automatically set my IE to use proxy server. The url that I have problem with are only accessible through "Automatically detect settings" with LAN settings for IE. Therefore, with Charles is running, I got the same error message from IE browser as I got from my perl script.

So, my guess is that the web server for my problematic url doesn't recognize connection of client through proxy. Am I right? If so, what's the solution for this?

Thanks again!

    Hmmm,
    It is going to be difficult then. I can think of two things (I may be wrong totally):

    1) See if adding cookies to the user agent solves it. You can use HTTP::Cookies
    2)Try to make your useragent appear as IE or Firefox. I am not sure if it legal. Sincere apologies if it is illegal. Don't try until you figure that out. Regarding how to do it it should be something like,
    $ua->agent("Mozilla/4.76 [en] (Windows NT 5.0; U)");

    That is all that comes to my mind. Monks can any one help us on this.
