Interesting. WebCopy doesn't "invent" URL's, so for whatever reason login.aspx probably does direct to MyPage.aspx after login. Form posting in WebCopy doesn't follow any redirects at all as it isn't supposed to care about them - it just needs to post the form and determine if that was successful.

What is the root URL for your project - this is the value that WebCopy uses to crawl pages. It sounds like it should be set to for you. (Any defined forms will always be submitted before crawling begins to set up cookies etc)

Generally, the more information you can provide on this type of thing the better - as you can imagine, diagnosing problems to systems I don't have access to is a touch difficult!

Read "Before You Post" before posting. Do not send me private messages. Do not expect instant replies.
