I am trying to download files from urls beginning with HTTPS. I am using TOR/Privoxy to protect privacy while downloading files. But when i try to download file it gives me error and does not allow me to download file.
I created a sample project in vb.net (attached). There is a GO button, clicking it will open Gmail signup page (i chose it because it uses HTTPS so good for testing) in embeded webbrowser. Once it finished loading, click "Download Image", it will try to download captcha image from gmail page but always fail with error (i hard coded TOR/Privoxy IP, port into code i.e. 127.0.0.1, 8118)
But when i try to download it without TOR/Privoxy it works fine.
You have to do two things-
1. Fix my code so that i can download Google captcha image using TOR/Privoxy. You can use webclient or Httpwebrequest class to do it. Make sure that it will work with any HTTPS url not just with Gmail page. Gmail page is just for testing.
2. When using TOR/Privoxy it also raises 3-4 unhandled script errors like "_uRno is undefined". You have to write code to handle this error and prevent it from appearing on screen.
