Hi all,

Attempting to use PHP to navigate a foreign website, to collect data. This is thus only tangentially related to databases, so I apologize if some feel it's too off-topic.

Is there any way to do something similar to fopen() except to also have PHP present a cookie to the foreign webserver as credentials during the HTTP GET? Anyone done something similar?

There are multiple projects which will do this for you, simulating an HTTP Client. The one I suggest is PEAR::HTTP_Client. You can use it to send authentication information or to login to a page and it will keep track of cookies for you.

If all you need is to do one request, it may be easier to use HTTP_Request instead.
