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

P: 5
Hi All,
I am using LWP::UserAgent and HTML::TreeBuilder to communicate to the below site
Here is the website map: 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_date
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::TreeBuilder. 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(' ', [
  9.     "user_id"  => "anonymous",
  10.     "user_pwd" => "password",
  11. ]);
  13. my $response = $ua->post( '', [
  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..
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.
