Can't download from URL


I tried to download this URL:

http://www.patches-scrolls.com/getfi...rver350.tar.gz

When I try to download it through my browser it start downloading automatically

But when I try from linux everything is going wrong
It just download the getfile.php file instead of the needed file.

I tried following commands which didn't work

wget "http://www.patches-scrolls.com/getfile.php?file=toserver350.tar.gz"
curl -O -L "http://www.patches-scrolls.com/getfile.php?file=toserver350.tar.gz"

Still getting the same thing again and again.

How can I download it properly?

Your link just gives me this message:
Quote:
please go to download site and try again
The word "download" is linked to this site: http://www.patches-scrolls.com/search.html
Did you go to that site and fill in the information?

this one should work
http://www.patches-scrolls.com/dl.ph....tar.gz&ref=ps

So it looks like it needs cookies to start downloading the file...

Yes, it certainly does. Doesn't look like anything I'd be interested in but I hope you enjoy it.

Mate, i only run linux. I went to the first link you provide, and it was no good. Exactly as jdkaye said.
I went to the second link you provided, and clicked the mirror 1 link, to dowload and it began downloading a 'toserver350.tar.gz. What more do you want?
