I'm trying to download some images from an asset folder of a site, that folder happens to be forbidden.
I've tried various suggestions online including a referrer flag for google.com and setting the user agent (both simple and verbose) but still the 403 remains.
I can access the image directly if I give wget the full path but was hopeful of finding a workaround so I can fire and forget.
Is this feasible at all?
The most simplest for of the command that I'm using is :
wget -r -np -U firefox http://sitename.com/subdir/forbiddenDir
and the response is:
Reusing existing connection to sitename.com:80. HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 403 Forbidden 2016-03-01 22:26:41 ERROR 403: Forbidden.
curl yields similar response.
thanks in advance
