Sounds like you'll need to get the appropriate cookie by using Wget to
login to the website. This requires site-specific information from the
user-login form page, though, so I can't help you without that.
If you know how to read some HTML, then you can find the HTML form used
for posting username/password stuff, and use
wget --keep-session-cookies --save-cookies=cookies.txt \
- --post-data='username=foo&password=bar' ACTION
Where ACTION is the value of the form's action field, USERNAME and
PASSWORD (and possibly further required values) are field names from the
HTML form, and FOO and BAR is the username/password.
