    Hi @donquijotedelasnubes

    Your command as typed is incorrect, as the \ (back slash) between the URL and --user... indicates the command is split on 2 lines, not 1 as typed by you. If you type it in one line, you should have a space instead of a \ (back slash). Also pay attention to the note underneath the command regarding underscores and what can happen when copy/pasting, and how that can be fixed.

    If you want to retrieve the resource files via the browser, you must follow the instructions provided in the introductory chapter, on the Course Resources page.

    In addition, you should follow security best practices and not share publicly login credentials.


  • @fcioanca thank you kind lady :)
