Hi Ravi,

Is it an authentication error that you are getting like the following?:

"HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 401 Authorization Required Authorization failed"

Your command syntax works fine for my on Fedora 13, GNU Wget 1.12. Perhaps its a character in the password that is causing problems if its not escaped properly, i.e. if it contains a ! or "... it may need to be escaped with a backslash before it.

If your version off wget supports it, you can also try the following:

Code:
wget --user=admin --ask-password 10.0.0.1/filename
then type the password when prompted, it will at least confirm that the wget/username/password combination is actually working.

Hi

What kind of error message do you get? One common problem is that the certificate is not properly signed. The first time you tried it with a browser, did you get some message about the certificate? If you clicked continue and add exception to make it work, you need to do the same for wget.

You can use the extra option --no-check-certificate with wget, like this:

Code:
wget -no-check-certificate https://admin:password@10.0.0.1/filename

Hi Guttorm/Ian,
I am able to download file now
wget --no-check-certificate https://admin:secretpass@10.0.0.1/filename.log

but still I am not able to download the files those are in query string, please suggest the way to download these.

wget --no-check-certificate https://admin:secretpass@10.0.0.1/my...s&NFS=netapp00

It gives an error 404 not Found, to verify I have check the file founds when I open it through browser.

You can give a try to --post-data (see man wget for details):
Code:
wget --no-check-certificate --post-data 'rootDir=logs&NFS=netapp00' https://admin:secretpass@10.0.0.1/mydir/subfolder/myapp.log
