Actually I am using Httrack as a web crawler, can it use my credentials to access members area and download the zip files because they are restricted from public access.

Thank you in advance.


After all the problem was with my IPV6
it must be disabled; with (Windows 8 x64), I created a registry Dword32 "DisabledComponents" with the value of 0xffffffff
restart the system
httrack works with capture url, because with ipv6 it gives me a proxy adress like xxxx::xxxx:xxxx:xxxx%19 and this is not useful with proxy settings in windows

Thank you for the answers

@DrewKhoury I think this is the right place to ask a question when you can't find a solution with serach engines? – Abdelhafid Madoui Nov 17 '13 at 11:47

It's a little difficult to fully understand what you are actually asking due to the way you have worded your question. I'm guessing you are trying to access a restricted part of a website and download files from that section?

If so, yes it can be done but its not easy to achieve and it will fail if the website provides a logout link which undoubtedly it will. As the crawler follows the logout link you will no longer have a valid session/cookie with the website and the crawl will come to a halt.
