It looks like --auth-no-challenge works when --user/--password or - --http-user/--http-password is used; but not when the user/pass information is passed directly via the URL. You can use - --auth-no-challenge together with either of those option pairs as a work-around. - --auth-no-challenge was intended to make wget 1.11.x behave like 1.10.2 with regard to authentication (that is, broken and insecure). It's generally a bad idea to send authentication credits before the server tells Wget what sort of authentication scheme should be used (it may offer more secure alternatives to the "basic" mechanism). However, in situations where the server uses forms-based authentication for interactive communication, some servers accept authentication if offered, but will not issue the challenge if it's not, instead expecting users to authenticate through the forms; situations like that are why - --auth-no-challenge was introduced. I'll file a report for this issue; but if this is the only thing that crops up, I probably won't roll a new 1.11.x maintenance release just for that, so it'll have to wait until 1.12. - -- Micah J.
