Site gives Unauthorized or forbidden no matter what.

www.cfnm.net is the site, I have a paid subscription. I`ve set it to parse the scripts, the different login methods, prompting first, even logging in thru OE, still won`t authenticate. I`ve tried just giving it one of the inside directories to try and start from as well, just gives a 401 error (unauth).

Here`s an excerpt from the JS their using, perhaps you can think of some way around this shadowing it`s doing:

<form name="login_form" action="home.asp" method="post">
<div class=logindiv>

<table cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 border=0 width=100% class=logintable>
<tr>
<td colspan=2 align=center>Enter your login and password to sign in</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td align=right>Login:</td>
<td><input size=17 name="loginName"></td>
</tr>

<tr>
<td align=right>Password:</td>
<td><input type="password" maxLength=32 size=17 name="loginPassword"></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td colspan=2 align=center>
<input type=hidden name="action" value="login">
<input type=hidden name="login_return" value="">

<input type=submit name="signin" value="Sign In">
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</div>
</form>

Can you try the following:

You need to browse to the logon page of the site using the internal Browser of Offline Explorer Pro .

If you need to download the site immediately and only once, you can proceed with the logon and begin downloading the desired pages using Offline Explorer Pro . The program will use the session cookies of the logged on site from the internal browser.

You can also record the logon form contents in a Project, so that Offline Explorer Pro will know how to log itself on whenever you wish to download the site. This is useful when you want to schedule the site download or perform it later, or if you want to update the downloaded site in the future.

Once you have entered your username and password on the logon page in the internal browser, press and hold the Alt + Ctrl keys on your keyboard, click the Logon (or Submit) button in the Web form and release the keyboard buttons. You should get a new Project that contains the Web form information recorded in the URL field.

Adjust the Project settings as you wish (set the Level and other parameters) and click the OK button to save the Project. You may begin downloading at any time.

Note: The form recording method is supported only in the Pro and Enterprise editions of Offline Explorer.

Does this help?

Other method mentioned didn`t work, however the above did, very nice feature I was ignorant of.
