Last time I answered a question for you, you had some not-nice things to say.

Read the error. It's telling you very clearly that the command doesn't know what kind of terminal you're using. If you then go and read the man page on the lynx command, you'd see the "-term=" flag...that will very obviously tell lynx what kind of terminal you're using, on the command-line. So either put your lynx command into a shell script and specify it, or add the -term flag to the line above.

Hello,

I said sorry in that post and again getting apology for any inconvenience

I just tried to run this on command prompt to check before making .sh file but its not running
Code:
# lynx http://www.myDomain.com/servlet/BulkSavedCVs?category=1&folderId=01&noOfFiles=0
[2] 31013
[3] 31014
#
regarding "-term=" what information I provide after = signs of -term?

Thanks again & best regards

Hi again,

Code:
[root@myServer ~]# echo $TERM
vt100
[root@myServer ~]# lynx -term=vt100 http://www.myDomain.com/servlet/BulkSavedCVs?category=1&folderId=01&noOfFiles=0
[4] 1069
[5] 1070
Did you mean the above? I don't know why its not working as I checked and my servlet not invoked. Its not working due to passed variables??

Best regards
