Harshad, it sounds like you are trying to achieve exactly the same result as
me, and are having the same problem with images.

I am downloading a company intranet site for distribution on a DVD. The site
is a mixture of PHP-based pages, and selected pages of a MediaWiki Wiki. I
also have to supply a username:password for authentication with the server.
Originally the download was manually invoked using WinHTTrack, but I have
since switched to running the commandline version under Linux, in order to
automate it.

The downloaded site then gets transferred to DVD for distribution to selected
external recipients.

I am using the following browser ID:
"Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)"
My images are all downloaded OK, and the paths to the images in the HTML all
seem correct. However, they don't display in Internet Explorer 6, but are fine
in Firefox.
In IE, if I right-click where the image should be, select "properties" and
copy the image path, then enter this in the URL bar, the image displays just

I still can't figure out what's going on.
I wonder if when running from the server, there is some additional
pre-processing of the page or styles, that is not happening when the pages are
accesses offline from a static filesystem ?
I'd be very grateful if anyone knows a solution to this problem!!

As per the previous reply, I don't think you can set the username/password in
the filter section.
I'm guessing that authentication is only valid on the server is was associated
with, so presumably you'd somehow have to specify both server URLs with a
username/password. Not sure though.
