view full story

http://serverfault.com – I'm trying to run Wget for a certain HTTP url, also using http-user and http-password command line options (tried the --user and --password, same results). Using the --no-check-certificate options as well so basically running this line : wget --no-check-certificate -http-user=user http-password=password https://url.com I'm getting this response : Connecting to url.com||:443... connected. WARNING: cannot verify url.com's certificate, issued by `/C=IL/ST=url.com': Self-signed certificate encountered. HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 400 Bad Request 2012-01-18 15:13:53 ERR (HowTos)
