All my efforts to get a copy of a site has failed.

Here is the scenario:

Suppose I am searching for all words that begin with 'ab'. This would be the
URL: <>

I am doing this in an effort to get a page with many more links to all those
words that contain 'ab'.

But, when I reach that URL, it tells me "active connections not allowed" and
offers that I do it 'their way'.

IOW, a textbox with 'ab' in it, plus a button that says 'search' on it.

And, lo and behold, when I press that button the URL that gets sent is exactly
the same as the one above. [I have used various HTTP sniffers and they all
confirm it.]

I don't quite understand what's happening here.

Same URL, but different results.

I wouldn't mind it so much, but this is screwing up HTTrack: I simply get
practically nothing --only pages that say "active connections not allowed".

All articles
