That depends on how you enter your user name and password. If it's via using an HTTP user ID and password, that's pretty easy. wget http://www.custsite.com/some/page.html --http-user=USER --http-passwd=PASS If you supply your user ID and password via a web form, it will be tricky (if not impossible) because wget doesn't POST forms (unless someone added that option while I wasn't looking. :-) Tony
