I'm closing this bug as I am unable to reproduce it with current versions of libcurl.

If you are still using castget and this remains a problem, please let me know!

Hi there,

I am having issues with castget 1.0 on debian (sarge) with the proxy authorization after castget has recieved a http redirect.

Here is my http traffic log:

Then it does on interpreting the reply. Apart from fixing the bug, I would suggest to check for a correct http status code as well.

Otherwise, castget is a very nice tool.
