Supported downloads need authentication

To download licensed, supported packages from one needs the portal user credentials to authenticate. This works quite okay in your browser, but when using wget, a few options need to be set.

Without authentication one will get the following error:

$ wget
--2011-03-09 18:02:36--
Connecting to||:443... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 401 Authorization Required
Authorisation failed.

wget command line options

By specifying the option --user and --ask-password wget will ask for the credentials. Below is an example. Change the username and download link to your needs.

wget --user=username --ask-password
