Yes, you can.
It is even probably possible to get the target file directly. Depends on how 
the website is done. Your are required to pass thru the previous pages only 
to grab cookies, if any.
You have to analyse the pages you receive to see axactly which request(s) to 
send. You may also use a sniffer to capture a complete browser session and 
see exactly which requets are sent, which relocation occurs, which cookies 
are exchanged.

Once you have all the requests, and their parameters, you can do exactly the 
same with the HTTP component.
