ello,

I am trying to use 'multiget' to download from a password authenticated web site; when I initiate the transfer, I write the user/pass in the form; the server runs lighttpd; the authentication is the simple, plain one; the log reports

192.168.0.1 www.yyyy.org - [06/Mar/2012:17:35:27 +0000] "HEAD /zzz/bigfile.avi HTTP/1.1" 401 0 "http://etcetc" "Mozilla/4.0(compatible;MSIE 5.00;Windows 98)"

Other web browsers, when they get the 401, then retry and send the user/pass ; 'multiget' instead declares failure, and then waits 30 seconds and tries again, and so on forever.
