Question question about using lynx

I'm trying to hit a secure site powered by resin from lynx. The site issues jsession id's for all transactions. Once on the main site, I can try to log in, but this is beyond the standard lynx switch of -auth=userass. The site is Anyone know how I can pass the login credentials and jsession id so I can actually log in to this private area via lynx?

you have to get all the inputs that's posted and contruct a post string and then run something like....

lynx -coookie_file=xxx -post_data 'https://actionurl' <yyy

xxx is a temp file to store your cookies.
yyy is the file with the post inputs you have contructed.
actionurl is the bit in the <form action="..... thing on their site
