Fingers of Fury!


I am the web master of the Twisted Sisters web site. Twisted Sisters is a guild that plays across two servers. Because some of the feaures of Guild Portal don;t support a guild belonging to two servers I have written my own Perl scripts to fetch and generate HTML output for our own custom 'Renown Rankings' and a replacement 'Roster' pages on the site.

Now thats all cool because I can get into work in the morning, arc up the laptop and set my scripts running to regenerate everything for the day then post the updated HTML pages manually.

What I would really like to do however is to script the update of the custome HTML pages remotely. I attempted to put together a perl script using LWP etc to login however I can't seem to get a successful login. Having done this prior on many other applications I am pulling at straws trying to work out what I am missing.

Without compromising your login security mechanisms could you possibly give me a hint as to the requireed form parameters, cookies that need to be set etc to be able to perform a scripted remote login (assuming I have valid login credentials)?

I could then drive the whole page generation/site update process via a daily cron job on my home Ubuntu box and not have to worry about it
