    download a pw locked file from website

    hi guys,

    im studying bioscience and found an interesting abstract

    http://www.bvt.cbi.uni-erlangen.de/h...ioprocess1.pdf

    but im not able to download it because its pw locked.
    i was told that its only for students in 'erlangen' and because im studying in berlin they wont help me out.

    but shouldnt be knowledge available for everyone? thats why i need your help. is there a chance to get that file anyway?

    thanks for your help.

    greets
    kris

    ..............uhm hmmm, lesse here.
    no?

    Its called access control. You need a certain set of credentials. Obviously you are not a person granted access to this particular resource. And as you state, its ONLY for students in 'erlangen'. If they wanted you to have access to it... they would allow you to....

    *rethinks your post*
    how do you know its interesting if you are not able to access it?
    Remember -

    Yes - write to/email the uni & find out who posted this.

    Then write to them, explain who you are, where you are and why you want it and they may then send it to you.

    If not, then since it's their property you will have to do without it.

    Please don't come here asking people to get that file for you. It's breaking the law and no one is going to do that for you, and neither should you attempt to do so either.

    I sympathise with your plight, but the only way to get this is by asking for it.

    This thread may be better placed in GCC.

    yeah ok. thank you for your thoughts. i know the professor, he teached in berlin before he left to erlangen. and i know his documents. they were on the university server in berlin until he left. and unfortunetly i didnt saved them before.

    im not asking people to get that file for me. and i dont want to break any laws.

    ive already asked his secretary for the pw and as you know she rejected.

    thank you anyway

    I would as well, since the username & password are likely to give access to other things.

    Asking the prof for the file may yield better results.
