I am new to SharePoint. I was trying to download and upload file using Perl script in a Linux machine but getting an "NTLM Authentication Error" while running the script.
I tried downloading the file using "wget" providing valid credentials through following command
wget --user username --password passwd http://dest.sharepoint.com/Folder/file.txt
but got the error "
401 Unauthorized". I am not able to identify the cause. 401 error occurs when authentication is required and it is not provided whether it has failed or not. But in the above case username and password provided is correct because I am able to browse to the file using GUI in browser with same credentials.
If any one has any idea about this please let me know.
