LWP::UserAgent Get a page after authenicating in SSL mode

5 New Member
Hi All,
I am using LWP::UserAgent and HTML::TreeBuild er to communicate to the below site
Here is the website map:

https://secure.server.com/index.htm which asks for two fields
then submit button
the form is submitted to
which validates the login credentials and if validated then user is redirected to main.asp and there will be a link called
which will have field
and after typing the serialnumber and hitting submit button the data is POST'ed to data.asp and details like
1) Manufacured_dat e
2) Model
3) Site .e.t.c comes in a tabular format.

Now the requirement:
I have to write a perl script which will do all these jobs behind the screen using LWP::UserAgent and use HTML::TreeBuild er. Since the site is SSL based i used CRYPT:SSLeay. Now my program looks like this

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. use strict;
  2. use warnings;
  3. use LWP::UserAgent;
  4. use HTML::TreeBuilder;
  6. my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new( agent => 'Mozilla/5.0' );
  8. my $response1 = $ua->post('https://secure.server.com/login.asp ', [
  9.     "user_id"  => "anonymous",
  10.     "user_pwd" => "password",
  11. ]);
  13. my $response = $ua->post( 'https://secure.server.com/data.asp', [
  14.     "tx_Sno" => "T450W34990",
  15. ]);
  16.     print $response->status_line;
  17.     print $response1->status_line;
  18.     print $response->content;
  19.     print $response1->content;
The output is Status ok but the login data.asp is not getting into the session and it returns the response..
parent.document .location.repla ce('/index.htm');
which means the session created by response1 is not applying to response POST. Can anyone help me how to handle this situation...

hmmm... that makes at least three forums now you have this posted on. I can see posting on a forum and after not getting any replies after a day or two moving on, but this is not the case.

Hello - I am new to Perl, so sorry if this is a silly / ultra easy question. I am using LWP::UserAgent to POST a HTTP message to another website, and it works great. However, I can't figure out how to redirect the user to a script at the same time as the post. (i.e. emulate sumbitting a form and being sent to a page. $org_response = $res->as_string; this gives me the page as a string, but

When running the sample code below without a proxy the GET returns the expected data. When run with the $proxy uncommented the GET returns the content of the login page for the site being accessed. The site in the code is valid for ease of testing. I also am including the LWP debug info for each attempt. Can anyone explain this behavior and what can I do to correct it? Thanks in advance

I'm trying to access a site with data that needs to be paged through, one page at a time. It won't allow back buttons and you have to use the menu links to get through. In other words, it is run through CGI (ASP, I think) and must be able to keep track of sessions. I have a simple program I've written using Perl and LWP. I tried a totally innocuous site (TVLand.com) that I found had cookies. When I read in 1 page from this site, I...
