I have come across a site which will not accept a download request
from wget, but will accept the same request from curl. My son
runs Ubuntu and his wget can fetch from the site. I am running
14.2 Slackware 64. Thinking that my version of wget might be
too old I updated to the version in current which necessitated
updating a half dozen other packages. No success, however
with the newest version of wget. The site is a small private
operation so I don't want to burden it with a number of
requests so I hope you can suggest a reason why wget might
fail under Slackware and not under Ubuntu, or why curl
works and wget doesn't.
I have tried different user agents as well as no-check-certificate
which has worked on other problem sites.
Thanks for any suggestions.
