If I try to download a map tile from the google servers with php, the ones that contain the satelite images download fine (the ones in jpeg). But if I try to download the ones with the maps (in png), I get a "Forbidden 403" error.
If I include the url of the png image in a html img tag, the images shows up with no problem.
If I download the image with urldownloadtofile in delphi, the image downloads perfectly.
If I plug in the url in IE the image downloads fine.
I tried using two diferent hosts and get the same problem.
If I try with a different png image from another url the image downloads fine with the same php script.
$mapImage = @imagecreatefrompng('http://mt0.google.com/mtn=404&v=w2.66&x=629&y=966&zoom=6&s=Galileo');
