OEE - Can`t DL site due to referrer problem (I think)

I`m trying to download the following site, without success:

<http://www.elproa.cl/>

OEE downloads some miscellaneous support files (javascript and stuff), but none of the main site. The problem seems to be a very demanding referrer requirement. So demanding, in fact, that if you copy URLs, paste them in the IE address bar and hit enter, the page won`t load.

How can I get around this? I know OEE has a "referrer=" option, but how do I know what to put there? And what if it`s always different, which I presume it is?

BTW, in the online help about the "referrer=" option, the title of the section has "referrer" with 2 Rs, but the command has "referer=" with 1 R. Which is correct?

Hello,

Both Referer= and Referrer= are correct - to avoid possible typing mistakes, Offline Explorer Pro recognizes both commands.

However there should be no problem if you start loading directly from the following URL:

http://www.elproa.cl/

But if you want to load an individual article, then you can type the following two lines in the URLs field:

http://www.elproa.cl/web/html/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=1796
Referer=http://www.elproa.cl/

The above combination worked well for me and I got the page without error offline.

I hope this helps.

Best regards,

Th?s worked perfectly. Thanks so much.

This doesn`t, however. For some reason, OE doesn`t "spider" through the site when I do this, even with the referrer set as above. It downloads about a dozen support files (java, txt, etc.) and that`s it.

Any idea what`s happening and how I can fix it?

Thanks.

OK. When you start loading from http://www.elproa.cl/, which page(s) display improper contents?
