You can connect to secure web pages with powershell using your username and password.

$url = "http://secure.yusufozturk.info/secured_page.aspx"
$username = "ysfozy"
$pass = "my_password"
$domain = "DOMAIN"
$webclient = new-object System.Net.WebClient
$webclient.Credentials = new-object System.Net.NetworkCredential($username, $pass, $domain)
$webpage = $webclient.DownloadString($url)

Simply use write-host to see contents of the web page.

Hi Yusuf
I am new to Powershell and am trying to make your script work for me. I’ve tried to use write-host to write the content to the screen but it’s not working. Can you give me a little more guidance on how to make the web page write to the screen? Thanks.

Hello Randy,
Did you try “write-host $webpage” to see contents? Also I posted a new article about how to parse a webpage and see specific parts of the web page. You can reach post from here:

Thanks ! It’s a useful script in corporate contexts where usage of a web browser is restricted on servers.
