curl --output /dev/null --form 'email=EMAIL' --form 'pass=PASS' --form 'remember=1' --cookie-jar ${root}/cookies.txt
curl -O

Nevertheless it's not working ... cookies.txt is nicely stored and also the second command is executed, with headers returned that indicate the xml file attached, but the file itself is never saved ... Does anyone understand what to change here?

wget -O /dev/null --quiet --no-check-certificate --save-cookies cookies.txt --post-data ''
wget --quiet --load-cookies cookies.txt
