And that's why you shouldn't rely on tools before you know what they do :)
Besides, sometimes different tools give different results. I'd rather use raw data and as much verbosity in tools whenever possible for that very reason.

This is not a question about how to complete the mission, but how is it done? Other then that 1 comment on the password there is nothing that has to do with checking what the user inputs to that password. How do they check to see if what you enter is the same? If anyone can help me with this, the help is much appreciated. ;)

When you put some information into a website on the form, the web-browser sends a POST (HTTP) to the server with the information you put in. On the server side a script or program checks whether the POST you made is equal to the password stored in its memory. If true, it shows you the page you wanted, if not, you get an error message back.

Hi,

I just inspected the html-code?

Cyberdrain what you explained is that just by simply looking at the code, because i didnt exactly understand what you said.

Can anyone give a more clear example?

Thanks.

This was in response to the question of emorainbow27, how the mission works. It's not necessary for this mission to know how POST works, but it's useful to know eventually. And no, POST messages don't get sent when you inspect the code, only if you press "Submit" or "Search" or "Login" or anything else like that when you put something on the page.

Actually, it's more like a "not-an-idiot" diploma. ;)

I am just beginning to learn HTML. Are there any tips that you can give me? also, in the chapter about headings, it says describes how to view the HTML source. I have a Mac, and I'm curious, how do you view HTML source on a mac? Do you know? :?:
