I'm not too up on cURL's deeper innards, but I'd guess you might be needing to accept cookies or some such for session data. Look at cURL's  cookiejar feature. Look for cURL option constants for CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR and CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE

With all the javascript and 'postback' on that page, I suggest you get an ASP.NET programmer to tell you what's going on on that page.  'curl' isn't going to run the javascript on that page so you will probably have to figure a different way to get the info.
