Try upgrading both LWP and WWW::Mechanize, and try turning on debugging

    Both are up-to-date via activestate's ppms.

    I'm not sure how to turn on debugging though, I've tried

    use LWP::Debug qw(+);
    but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

      Both are up-to-date via activestate's ppms.

      Then they are not up-to-date (at least WWW::Mechanize isn't up to date, the version on activestate's repository is ancient).

      I'm not sure how to turn on debugging though, I've tried

      perldoc LWP::Debug

      use LWP::UserAgent; $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new; $ua->default_header('Accept-Encoding' => scalar HTTP::Message::decodab +le()); $ua->add_handler("request_send", sub { shift->dump; return }); $ua->add_handler("response_done", sub { shift->dump; return }); $ua->get("http://www.example.com");
        I realise activestate is going to be behind, but I'm a bit tied on that one, with no access to a compiler, (the machine I'm on is a restricted build).

        The debug doesn't really help either, it's only showing the one unauthorised response, just with a bit more detail, ie full headers, but nothing I can interpret as a problem

        Ta, Rob
