Problem browsing to direct link (frame)

I want to access certain page, i normally get to that page, from a previous "home" page where i log in, with some credentials (its https), user name and password, after loggin in i can access the page i need from a left menu (a frame).

if i click the link i can see the page i want (this is obvious) in the right frame.

Also if I right click my mous and i copy the link (its an absolute route, not relative) and i paste it into the navigation bar, i can see it too and occuppying fully my browser (this is obvious, im accessing the inner frame itself, so i can't see the left frame with the menu)

however if i copy this link directly into a NEW WINDOW navigatino bar, i can't see the page, and im not even asked to log in, it looks like some kind of security/cookie issue (remember, this is https).

Is there any way i can access directly this resource?

It would depend on the content of the URL.  It may contain session information that doesn't match any authentication information held in the browser window that you have pasted to.

There are lots of different ways to present information so it depends on what the server is expecting on how it will behave, and what to pass it.

If you are on linux or mac you could use something like Curl to  access the page which would allow you to provide the necessary authentication information as part of the request.

I am not aware of any similiar utility for Windoze.

Thats my guess as well, some session/cookie issue.

is there any thing i might check to find out whats going on?

My platform is Win XP and IE 6 (and without the possibility of upgrading neither OS nor browser) as this page works only with those settings on clients side.
If you paste the url of the page you are trying to access it will provide me with more info.  Leave the host details out.

What are you trying to achieve with this copy/paste approach to url access?

Its an intranet, thats why cant post the page here.

I'm trying to retrieve the page from a batch file in order to ease some repetitive task, instead of logging in, clicking etc.. every day several times...
I suggest you look at something like selenium to allow you to create a macro of what you need to do then and then set up a schedule task for that to run.

You can paste a URL, regardless of whether it is on an intranet.  The URL gives lots of clues about access mechanisms, etc.
