I ran following command however the auth if failing, can you please update the content as well as provide new credentials?

wget https://training.linuxfoundation.org/cm/LFD259/LFD259V2021-05-21SOLUTIONS.tar.xz--user=xxxx --password=xxxx

    @Devarshi.Pathak Credentials are correct. When you copy and paste a command, sometimes the underscores (_) disappear, as the note under the command in the lab document warns. It looks like this is the problem in your case as well.

    Ok, so I updated command and now it gives http 404, looks like the file not present? LFD259V2021-05-21SOLUTIONS.tar.xz

    wget https://training.linuxfoundation.org/cm/LFD259/LFD259V2021-05-21SOLUTIONS.tar.xz --user=xxxxx --password=xxx

    HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 404 Not Found

    Please pay attention to the underscores, as they are missing from your command. This is why you cannot access the solution files. Also, when posting in the forum, please do not post credentials.

    Hi @Devarshi.Pathak,

    The following note is included in the same textbox with the wget and the tar commands:

    Note: depending on your software, if you are cutting and pasting the above instructions, the underscores may disappear and be replaced by spaces, so you may have to edit the command line by hand!

    Please read the note carefully as it explains how to fix possible copy/paste issues.
