I would like to have cookie of a HTTPS site. I do have credential and certificate to access given site.

If I access site from chrome/firefox then I can easily extract cookie but what is the way to have this cookie from command line by using curl,wget or similar CUI-based tools ?


Try this out:

curl -c - '<website>'
  • -c flag is to retrieve the cookie
  • curl: no URL specified! curl: try 'curl --help' or 'curl --manual' for more information – SHW May 4 '17 at 13:07
  • What command did you use? Can you copy and the paste the exact command? – ryekayo May 4 '17 at 13:08
  • I used the same command as you mentioned by replacing '<website>' by desired URL. – SHW May 4 '17 at 13:10
  • I made a typo in my answer.. Just updated – ryekayo May 4 '17 at 13:11
  • I tried that too. Then message appears as "<html><head><title>Object moved</title></head><body>" – SHW May 4 '17 at 13:13
