Hi Everyone,

I have been using the version of Wget 1.5.3.1 that is part of 6.2 to monitor contents of a web pages and alert if a predefined text string is not present on the page.  This has worked very well for HTTP sites. The method I have been using is wget http://mysite.com/Login.aspx , unfortunately the command doesn't work with HTTPS  wget https://mysite.com/Login.aspx .

I have not been able to find anything online or in the forums to resolve this issue. 

Question:

  1. Is anyone else monitoring page content on HTTPS sites?  If yes, what approach has worked?
  2. Has anyone been able to use wget with HTTPS site?

Thanks very much,
Joe
