Is anyone able to point me to the right direction (an example would be fantastic) for a simple script that can connect to (example):

It will send my username/password and save the page (after all redirects) to a file. I can parse it from there but I have limited perl/php knowledge that can allow me to send variables via https and also to save the page locally.

Have tried curl and wget but without success.

For example:

curl ""
returns a html page with an error Failed to create new Authentication Context

If I try on the broadband usage page:

curl "" I just get an empty page.

My assumption would be that it's not following redirects or accepting cookies properly. Any hints would be greatly appreciated.
