Hi Everyone,

I have been using the version of Wget 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. 


  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,
