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

The code below was actually taken from a script I wrote that accessed an IIS server. It has been modified a bit, but should work:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use LWP; use LWP::UserAgent; my $URI = ''; my $user = 'foo'; my $pass = 'bar'; # define user agent my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new(); $ua->agent("USER/AGENT/IDENTIFICATION"); # make request my $request = HTTP::Request->new(GET => $URI); # authenticate $request->authorization_basic($user, $pass); # except response my $response = $ua->request($request); # get content of response my $content = $response->content(); # do whatever you need to do with the content here print $content; exit;
