Linux curl: Usename with @ in it

This does not work because there is an @ in the username:
curl -kX -u nlbdmobz@sharklasers.com:password123 GET https://zqzqzqz555.couchappy.com/site/www/zzz/hello.txt

Open in new window

Put a backslash (\) in front of the @ sign:

curl -kX -u nlbdmobz\@sharklasers.com:password123 GET https://zqzqzqz555.couchappy.com/site/www/zzz/hello.txt

No, that does not work.  Please test it.  The example I provided uses a real site with a real username and password.  Thanks.

Your syntax is just wrong now that I think about it.. this works fine for me:

user@hp:~> curl -k -u nlbdmobz@sharklasers.com:password123 -X GET https://zqzqzqz555.couchappy.com/site/www/zzz/hello.txt
Hello Worlduser@hp:~>
